There are many reasons to ride Reach the Beach: to support the American Lung Association, to enjoy the comaraderie of fellow cyciists, to take in the beautiful scenery of Oregon. We ride for all these reasons.
We also ride to honor the memory of Kalany Benoit - a competitive tennis player and triathlete - and her son Matthew Benoit - who swam for Cal Berkeley - both of whom were taken far before their time by cancer.
We ride because we can think of no better way to honor the generous spirit of Kalany and Matt who always thought more about what they could do for others than about themselves.
Please considering joining Team Benoit in supporting the ALA and its programs as we Reach the Beach.
