Every Mile Counts

We are riding back to the beach!

Join us on a mission to make a difference for everyone who breathes. We are very excited to announce that on May 20, 2023 we will be riding back to the beach and will offer our four traditional ride lengths: 100m, 75m, 50m, 25m and the virtual option to Cycle Your Way. This cycling event is perfect as a personal challenge, an opportunity to explore your community, and a way to stay active. The in-person and Cycle Your Way options both have amazing support throughout the event! We provide superb organization, beautiful routes, numerous social events, regular training challenges, excellent fundraising support, and more!

Reach the Beach OR will celebrate its 33rd anniversary in 2023. Our mission: to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease is still in hyper-drive. The dollars our riders are raising are making a difference at this critical time.

Reach the Beach OR encourages our cyclists to stay active and enjoy time on their bike while supporting the work of the American Lung Association. Please review the details below regarding how you can participate.
