Tour of the Basque Country Champ Chris Horner

This is a rare chance to ride with one of our own. Chris Horner world class cyclist and Oregonian communist will be riding the Echelon Gran Fondo Cycling Series this year. We have a chance to ride the Echelon Portland Columbia River Gorge Cycling Gran Fondo with him.

Echelon Portland Columbia River Gorge Cycling Gran Fondo: Registration

Echelon Gran Fondo is a series of European style mass participation cycling rides (Cyclosportif rides) held on epic courses in destination locations. Gran Fondos attract a broad array of cyclists including casual riders, weekend warriors, amateur racers and a few professional cyclists. Each ride provides a challenge for everyone, including a 30, 60, or 100 mile road cycling option. For those who want to compete for time or those with a personal challenge against the clock, we have a special timed 40K section, with a theatrical party atmosphere and a hill top finish.

An “echelon” is a group which benefits more by its formation than by one’s proceeding alone. Echelon is a unique partnership with our participants who donate and raise money, with our sponsors who donate merchandise, and with our cancer institutes who volunteer their time to help put on cost effective events. We reward individuals and teams of 5 or more riders to compete for prizes on and off the course. We partner with LIVESTRONG and local cancer institutes to raise money for cancer survivors, cancer treatment and research. Together we Thrive.

Ride it, Rip it, or just have a Rage. From start to finish, prepare to be doused in cheering crowds and unusual entertainers. Sign up today as an individual or team, sponsor a participant, or just make a donation to this worthy cause.

This is a rare chance for us “normals” don’t miss this chance of a lifetime!
