Cycle Oregon raising funds for local groups
During Cycle Oregon this week, Airstream Adventures Northwest is partnering with Oregon City-based Childrens Center, Portland-based New Avenues for Youth, and the Cycle Oregon Fund to gear up for kids and communities.
Airstream Adventures Northwest is underwriting Team Airstream riders fees, so all funds that the team raises will go directly to the three benefiting nonprofits. The Cycle Oregon Fund disburses roughly $100,000 each year in grants to projects and endeavors in small towns around Oregon.
Cycle Oregon, an annual event for more than 25 years, this year is hosting 2,000 riders cycling nearly 500 miles from Sept. 6 through 13. This years route will cover the "Magnificent 7 of the Cascade Range and includes more than 34,000 feet of climbing in seven days. This is Team Airstreams second year riding on behalf of local charities.
Team Airstream was founded and is led by Ted Davis, co-owner of Airstream Adventures Northwest, with locations in Portland, Seattle, Boise and San Francisco.
As we put our bodies and bikes through the most grueling Cycle Oregon yet, we ask that you help support our children and rural communities and sponsor a Team Airstream rider, Davis said. We have joined with these organizations to gear up for kids and communities.
