Cycle for Independence
May 20, 2017 from 7:45 am - 1:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Each year, the Treasure Valley Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind puts on a bike ride called Cycle for Independence, our way of having fun while continuing to ensure the blind of Idaho can independently “Live the life they want.”
It is our major fundraiser of the year and is also a great festival for the whole family. Approximately 400 cyclists from the avid to the putt-putt choose among our 10 mile, 20 mile, or metric century rides. All rides feature supported water stops. We follow the rides by grilling burgers with all the fixings combined with socializing, music, festivities and prizes.
You could help us by forming a team and riding with us! This year’s festival is planned for May 20, 2017. To register or get more information visit www.cycleforindependence.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 208-870-4831.
