One-day cycling event supporting the American Lung Association


Event Rescheduled - New Date

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic REACH the BEACH will now move to October 11. We hope you will understand that this further change has been made out of an abundance of caution and concern for your safety and the safety of all the communities we ride through. We thank you for your support of our Mission and of our COVID-19 Action Initiative* and so look forward to welcoming you to a joyful and healthy REACH the BEACH 2020 on October 11.


Support our mission to make a difference for everyone who breathes. This one-day cycling event is perfect as a personal challenge and an opportunity to cycle together with co-workers, friends and family. REACH the BEACH is a top notch ride through some of Oregon’s best scenery, providing you with an amazing experience that gives you four different start locations,  superb organization, medical and mechanical support and eight lunch and snack stops.

If you would prefer to support the American Lung Association virtually, we encourage you to participate in My Ride. Join us by creating a ride at the location of your choosing, at a time that works best for you, on a route that is as challenging as you make it! This new, flexible option is customizable for families, advanced cyclists, or casual riders. Form your team or join an existing team and express your support through a local ride or through another physical activity. The Portland Bicycling Club has generously offered to help cyclists create the perfect route for My Ride. Whether you are riding the full century or looking to participate on a short family ride, they are here to help. Visit our Virtual Participation page to learn more. To sign-up for My Ride, simply select the Virtual option when registering. If you would like to switch to participating virtually, please contact Julia Baker at

Distance Biking

The American Lung Association has been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), state and local health departments, and our medical experts throughout this emerging public health situation.

We have taken the extra measure of postponing ALL local events and in-person meetings nationwide through May 31, 2020. This includes Training-Rides and Kick-Off events until further notice. We will keep you posted as updated information becomes available.

Our mission is in hyperdrive with COVID-19 and we appreciate your support more than you know! Please keep your family, co-workers and friends safe. Please educate yourself- we have some great resources for you at


Virtual Participation Available

In order to make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a Reach the Beach - Oregon Strava Club! Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone to track your miles as you cycle in support of the American Lung Association.
