Thank you, thank you, thank you for this opportunity to be a part of the Cycle Oregon ride this fall. I am delighted to accept this offer and look forward to riding on behalf of your father.

Hagen Hammons

Wow! Thank you so much for selecting me as a full grant recipient. It is truly an honor to be able to ride on behalf of the Mark Bosworth Fund.

Carly Reimer

Del Rio, Texas

Carly Reimer

I hoped spying on my competitors would reveal the secret to this cycling thing. No, no secret, only smiles and simple bliss. There was no competitive edge, only comradery among strangers.

Oscar Fernandez

Portland, Oregon

Thank you for considering my application and for sharing the good news. I am honored to be a recipient, and accept with gladness and with the realization that we honor a bicyclist who is not with us. I look forward to meeting the other worthy recipients.

Oscar Fernandez, on the Ride!

Here is Oscar at top of Bear Camp Overlook, Siskiyou National Forest 9/15/2016. He signed up for CO2017, but that ride was cancelled. We wish him a happy ride in 2018!
