A word from our friends at the Portland Bicycling Club:

Portland Bicycling Club (PBC)Congratulations on participating in Reach the Beach Oregon 2024 for the American Lung Association. Your friends and fellow cyclists from Portland Bicycling Club (PBC) will conduct training rides on Saturdays from March 2 to May 11.

Registering for Reach the Beach - The goal is set, and PBC offers the means to reach your goal. PBC wants you to enjoy the journey and have fun.  Let PBC motivate you, find fun routes, share past experiences, and talk kit.  Enjoy the occasional coffee stop.  PBC will help improve your skills and increase your confidence.

PBC offers rides to prepare for the whole century (100 miles) from Sauvie Island to Astoria. The training series begins with relatively short 40-mile rides and ramps up in difficulty to 70 miles just before the event.  The PBC ride calendar lists the Reach the Beach training rides, the most current and best source of information for each ride. Rides are altered for various reasons; please check the calendar before departing home. Don’t hesitate to contact the PBC ride leader(s) listed in the ride description; their email(s) and phone number(s) are available.

PBC wants you to have fun and a successful Reach the Beach experience, which means time in the saddle.  Non-Reach-the-Beach specific rides are offered.  Any PBC ride can be your training ride.  It needn’t be specifically labeled as a “Reach the Beach” training ride. Rides indicated as Reach-the-Beach training rides have leaders aware of participants' needs.  Discover additional rides at our website.

We so look forward to seeing you!
