Newport, Oregon, Yaquina Lighthouse Century Rides

The Yaquina Wheels Bicycle Club invites riders of all levels to the 5th
annual Yaquina Lighthouse Century Rides to be held on Sunday, August 16,
2009 in Newport, Oregon. All rides begin and end at the Yaquina Lighthouse
Visitors Center. The courses open at 7 am and close at 5 pm. Three rest
stops and one water stop along the route provide water, a variety of fresh fruits, cooked food
items and other snacks. Mechanical & SAG support will be available on all routes.

Riders choose from three distances: 25, 70 (extended metric century) or 100 miles
on a course that connects two lighthouses, weaves through Newport's historic
Bayfront, follows the Yaquina and Siletz rivers and passes along the
beautiful Central Coast of Oregon including breathtaking vistas at Cape
Foulweather. Watch for whales and birdwatchers look for herons, egret and
bald eagles along some of Oregon's most diverse coastal scenery and
roadways.

Proceeds from the rides go to Newport's Friends of the Lighthouses,
Waldport's Green Bikes Program and other local, regional and national
non-profit cycling organizations.

Please visit www.yaquinawheels.org/Century.html for more information and a link to online registration or a mail-in form.

It's always lots cooler over here at the coast...hit about 70 in Newport but was warmer inland, but not like the 'valley'.

Sounds like a different route this year. Is there anywhere I can see detailed route information?

Bump again, news flash:

Online registration has been extended until Friday the 14th for those who are waiting for the last minute. So you can still save a few $$ over day of ride registration.
