OK, so you’ve heard about the Cosmo 7K fundraiser for the Pink Lemonade Project, but what if you’re not a runner? What if you prefer leg-powered speed that includes two wheels, handlebars, and a helmet? In that case, sign up for the All-Ladies Champagne Bike Ride, happening this Sunday, Aug. 9, in Vancouver and again in Bend, Oregon, on Sept. 20.
Last year was the Champagne Bike Ride’s inaugural year, and it was so popular that Energy Events has brought it back for Year Two. Like the Cosmo 7K, proceeds benefit the Pink Lemonade Project, a nonprofit organization that educates, empowers, and supports those affected by breast cancer.
The 30-mile, non-timed ride offers a late morning start at 10 a.m., so that you can still get your beauty sleep before getting on your bike. The ride begins and ends at the historic O.O. Howard House, near Officer’s Row and Fort Vancouver at 750 Anderson St. You can register on the day of the race beginning at 9 a.m.
