Super soakers and sundaes promised for new ride

Posted by on May 18th, 2006 at 2:16 pm

Good Sport Promotion, the folks behind Reach the Beach, the downtown Twilight Criterium, Mt. Bike Oregon and other local bike events have announced their new Hottest Day of the Year Ride for August 6th.

The ride follows in the footsteps of the successful Worst Day of the Year Ride which was held last February and had over 1500 participants.

The Hottest Day of the Year ride will feature a 15 mile, flat and scenic urban loop with the best part coming at the end. Organizer Ayleen Crotty promisies “the city’s largest water fight and make-your-own sundaes at the finish line.”

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael

    If it bears any ironic resemblance to the Worst Day of the Year ride, this one will feature freezing rain and lightning.
    :P

    Worst Day of the Year ride is a benefit for the Community Cycling Center, and Good Sport helped promote it…. Does this ride raise funds for any organization?

    Yes, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the CCC.

    I hope they are set up for a cast of thousands, if the WDotY ride is anything to go by.
