New Years Day ride will benefit Oregon Food Bank

Posted by on December 9th, 2008 at 3:00 pm

Jim Hensel, a self-described bike commuter with a “crazy big heart” is putting on a new ride that he hopes will raise money for the Oregon Food Bank.

Dubbed the “Resolution Ride”, the ride will be unsupported (meaning bring your own water and snacks) and the route will take riders on a 50 kilometer loop from Multnomah Village to the Steel Bridge.

Hensel is a corporate CEO by day and is on the board of the Oregon Food Bank. He wants to help feed Oregon’s hungry citizens and he hopes each rider participating in the event will raise $250 in donations.

To learn more about the ride, see ResolutionRide.com.

    Lots of options for giving this season:

    There’s also a New Year’s Day ride that starts in Waterfront Park – and benefits the Brett Jarolimek Memorial Fund – check with Scott L at the BTA for more info on that.

    And, on Dec 20 the Portland Wheelmen are holding a ride to help one of their members cover expenses related to cancer treatment – Keith Ticknor, an active member of the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club since 1979, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in July. With Keith unable to work, his family — a wife and three young sons — is struggling to pay bills. The ride is Saturday, December 20, 11:00 am 1777 SE Milport Rd (SE 17th & Waverly Dr) in Milwaukie Please join the Wheelmen in helping Keith’s family.
