The folks at Echelon asked PPP to get the word out about this exciting event. It’s admittedly late notice, but we wanted to get this out there when there is still time for you to register to ride in the event this Saturday! If you do, please come back and post comments here and any links to your photos! INFO and REGISTRATION. You can also check out other events in the 2011 Echelon Gran Fondo Series Guide. The ride will benefit OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and the charity of your choice.
