100 Miles Via Tall Bike

This month marked the 20th anniversary of Reach the Beach, a 100-mile bicycle ride that goes from Portland to the coast and raises money to support the American Lung Association of Oregon. The ride is widely recognized as the official start of the Oregon cycling season, and this year some supporters decided to show their enthusiasm in some unconventional ways.

Team JetSteam received more than a little attention for riding the entire route on tall bikes (see photo above). Apparently, a few guys who rode the race on unicycles last year were looking for a different kind of challenge. Props to them for taking their dedication to the ride to new heights.

If you didn’t get involved with the race this year, mark your calendar for the next Reach to Beach on Saturday, May 21, 2011. What will you ride next year?
