We Invite You to Ride With Us on September 15th
from Cascade Locks, Oregon
About the Ride
Now in its 3rd year, the Cascade to Crown is set to become a highlight of the Gorge. This year, choose from 4 route options – 10 mile, 28 mile, 48 mile, & 62 mile – offer something for every ability or bicyclist in your family. No matter what route length you choose, you’ll find yourself in the midst of a very historic and scenic place. The 28 mile, 48 mile and 62 mile routes pass by many notable falls, such as Horsetail Falls, Oneonta Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Multnomah Falls on the way to the panoramic Crown Point. At the end of ride, enjoy lunch at Marine Park with the Columbia River Sternwheeler. For 2013, we’re excited to have a new caterer, improved & more route signage, and a route that doesn’t require riding on I-84 this year! With the opening of the “connector” between Warrendale and Moffett Creek the route is a true dream come true for riding the Gorge.
A Ride To Benefit The Parkinson’s Resources Of Oregon
What is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive, degenerative neurological disease that eventually renders many individuals immobile; stealing away independence, clarity of thought, and severely
limiting activities of daily living.
– PD affects over 1 million people in the U.S., more people than Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, & Lou Gehrig’s Disease combined.
– An estimated 25,000 people in OR and southern WA have PD.
– 16 new cases of PD each week.
– One third of the victims exhibitor first symptoms before age 50.
– Annual cost of medications to treat symptoms of PD exceed $6,000.
We’re excited to partner with the Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon. For over 30 years, the P.R.O. has been dedicated to helping patients and caregivers manage this complex disease with support programs and services. Your participation in the Cascade to Crown Bike Ride shows support for PRO and those with Parkinson’s disease.
