Join us on a mission to make a difference for everyone who breathes. We will be riding back to Astoria on Saturday, May 18, 2024! The route starts on Sauvie Island and ends in the heart of Astoria at the Barbey Maritime Center. There will be four ride lengths: 100m, 63m, 30m, 14m, and the option to Cycle Your Way. This bike ride is perfect as a personal challenge, an opportunity to explore a new route to the coast, and a way to stay active. The in-person and Cycle Your Way options both have amazing support throughout the campaign! We provide superb organization, beautiful routes, numerous social events, regular training challenges, excellent fundraising support, and more!
Reach the Beach Oregon will celebrate its 34th anniversary in 2024. 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.
