Big Day

Thank you to everyone who came to Corvallis Spring Roll today! We saw a lot of happy faces out there, and we hope you had just as much fun as we did! There were nearly 250 kids riding the race course and building their bike skills at our skills stations. A giant thank you to all our volunteers, community partners, and sponsors who made it happen. This is truly a community event.

Hope to see you at next year’s Corvallis Spring Roll . . . we’ll be getting ready. We hope you will, too.

See you in the bike lane!

(We’ll post pictures as they come in.)

 

Corvallis Spring Roll Eve

We’ve packed everything on our list and we’re ready to roll!

2013 loaded truck

These are things that wouldn’t fit in the bike trailer, so we put them in the truck. 😉

What’s on your list? Helmet . . . Bike . . . Kid . . . Water bottle . . . Extra bike  . . . you are bringing an extra bike, right? If you bring a bike in good working condition that your kid has outgrown, you can exchange it for another bike at the children’s bike swap. No exchange of money, just an exchange of bikes. The more bikes, the better!

Sunday, June 2. 10 am. Cloverland Park. See you there!

 

Fixed!

Registration is open. If it wasn’t working earlier, now is the time to try again. Thank you for being so patient.

We have a few more community partners to welcome: Soap Creek Collective will provide live music at the event, Soup Cycle will be on hand for soup sampling, and Dan Coyle – who is bringing some of his beautifully handcrafted wood helmets – will help us with helmet fittings before the race. Linus Pauling Institute also will be there with information about their Healthy Youth Program!

See you Sunday at Cloverland Park!

Forecast

We predict June 2 will be a great day to be at Corvallis Spring Roll. Did you see the weather forecast? It looks like it will be perfect! Sunny, highs in the mid-70’s. Can’t get any better than that!

Make sure you pre-register online so you can avoid the lines at registration and spend more time at the cycle fair! There is so much to see and do, so come join the fun!
