Stoll Berne was a primary sponsor of this year’s Cycle Oregon ride. Four members of the firm’s cycling team, Two & Oak Cycling, took to “The Best Bike Ride in America” this year. Shareholder, Gary Berne, Associate Keil Mueller, and Paralegal Jason Dotts joined Managing Shareholder and Cycle Oregon Board Member Keith Ketterling on the historic ride, which for the first time in history of the event included layover days in Pendleton that coincided with the Centennial Celebration of the Pendleton Round-Up.
Stoll Berne is proud to be a sponsor of Cycle Oregon, a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming individuals and communities through bicycling. Proceeds from the ride go to the Cycle Oregon fund, which helps preserve and protect the special places of Oregon and supports community development projects in the regions that host the ride.
This year’s route included some epic days in northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington. Many riders regaled day two of the ride as their best day ever on a bike. In the span of 84 miles, under a crystalline azure sky, the route dove down into Joseph Canyon, crossed the border to the Grand Ronde, climbed out through Rattlesnake Pass, emerged into golden wheat fields, before descending to the Snake River, where riders were welcomed in Clarkston, WA, by the local high school’s cheerleaders and band.
The organizers of Cycle Oregon have promised another amazing ride next year. So start putting in your miles and plan to come join us. Stoll Berne plans to be a part of this ride and organization for the foreseeable future.
