You may not be able to tell by the weather over the past couple of days, but it’s springtime! And there’s no better way to celebrate spring than by hanging out with the amazing people at Portland’s Community Cycling Center (CCC).
The CCC is hosting a spring fundraising party on Friday, May 31st, from 7:00 to 10:00pm at their new workshop location at 1805 NE 2nd Ave. Tickets to the event are only $10, and that low price will help the CCC move towards their spring campaign goal of $20,000. Your ticket also gets you delicious food from Russell St. Bar-B-Que and Bipartisan Café, as well as beer from Hopworks Urban Brewery, which will be flowing out of the famous Metrofiets beer bike.
You’ll also have access to a photo booth room and a bike museum, and the opportunity to buy $10 raffle tickets to win a pair of Cycle Oregon Week Ride passes, which are valued at $1,790. That $10 could give you the opportunity to spend a week riding with a friend or partner in the Eastern Oregon sunshine. One catch though: You must be present at the event to win the raffle prize.
During the event, you’ll hear about what’s in store for the CCC’s new workshop space, an update on their newest projects, and the opportunity to support their work to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits. Funds raised during this campaign will enable the Community Cycling Center to continue and expand their work of empowering individuals and creating a healthier, safer and more equitable community – with bicycles.
