What: Laurelwood Brewery Block Party to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation
The Portland-based Land Rover-Orbea Professional Cycling Team is partnering with Laurelwood Brewery to present a fun afternoon of bikes, BBQ and award-winning beer all while raising funds to help the Lance Armstrong Foundation fight cancer.
All 10 members of the UCI Continental Men’s Cycling Team will be on hand to participate in the ride, meet everyone, shake hands, sign autographs, flex their quads and enjoy the festivities. Team Manager Norrene Godfrey said this will be the first time all the team’s riders — who hail from New Zealand, Canada, Oregon, Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Colorado and California — will be in Oregon.
The day kicks off with a scenic 20-mile ride that will offer a bit of challenging terrain but reward participants with some of the best viewpoints of the city. Stick around after the ride for BBQ, beer, live music, a bike expo and more in the Laurelwood Brewery parking lot. All proceeds will go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation to support cancer prevention and survivorship.
John Ohnstad, LIVESTRONG Challenge Region 8 Mentor, will be on hand to answer any questions about the Lance Armstrong Foundation and how people can get involved with the Seattle LIVESTRONG Challenge.
When: Sunday, May 24th at noon
Where: Laurelwood Brewery & Public House, 5115 NE Sandy Blvd
Portland, OR 97213
More Info: Entry Fee: $20.00
All proceeds will go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation
