Thank you for your generous support of Corvallis Spring Roll! This was our fourth annual community kids’ bike and trike event, and its success showed that this bike-friendly community knows how to have fun! More importantly, it demonstrated that Corvallis is invested in the health, safety, and spirit of its children. Volunteers, sponsors, and partners alike, we couldn’t have done it without you!
