Weekend Fun: Cycle Challenge and Pringle Creek Circuit Race

Well, the sun graced us on the first day of summer. Hopefully it'll come back. Because this weekend there's two great bike rides in town! Plus the ferry!

The Boys and Girls Club Cycle Challenge is Saturday.
Join us for a fully-supported tour of the Willamette Valley, beginning at Willamette Mission State Park. Choose from a 31-mile route, 62-mile route or the family fun ride and walk. Proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Salem, Marion and Polk Counties.
On Sunday go to the races!
Enjoy an exciting day of bicycle racing in the scenic and urban setting of Pringle Creek Community, a sustainable living community in Salem Oregon.

There will be a memorial lap scheduled for 10:15 am in honor of Jim Henry.
And the Buena Vista Ferry opens today!

What a great weekend!

Update - Sad news: On August 5, people on bike will no longer be able to use the ferry for free and a $1.00 toll will be imposed.
