Despite forecasts of gloomy weather, the sun shone on May 10th, and OSLP’s third annual Pedal for People Metric Century ride was the largest one yet. This year, we had a record number of riders register and participate. In addition to the original 100k and 60k routes, we added two new route options for riders to choose from: a 100k Plus option and a 40k route. The 100k Plus route took a challenging detour through Shotgun Recreational Site and included epic hill climbs and stunning views of the Willamette Valley. All four routes provided fun and challenging rides throughout scenic Lane and Linn Counties.
Along the route, three rest stops provided fuel, hydration, and encouragement to all riders. These stops were stocked and staffed by three of our fantastic sponsors: Wells Fargo, Levi Strauss & Co., and Dari Mart. Riders were welcomed into Armitage Park by cheerleaders at the finish line and with pizza provided by Coburg Pizza Co. and beer from Ninkasi Brewing.
Many OSLP residents participated in the ride, including David, who rode for the second year on his custom bike, pedaled by OSLP staff person, Sam Hauk. What a great team!
