Bike riders enjoy the sun

Mark your calenders for an exciting event that will benefit charity while improving your health! The 4th annual Ride the Heart of the Valley is gearing up to occur on Saturday, April 28th.

Organized by the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine, this year’s event is proud to offer a 62-mile route for a more challenging experience, along with the more sedate 12 & 30-mile courses. Children are especially welcome to participate in the 12-mile course, either in pull-behind trailers or on separate bikes. All routes travel through the picturesque OSU campus and Corvallis downtown before winding through beautiful Northwest countryside and heading back to campus for a catered lunch.

This year’s theme is Vector Borne Diseases and costumes are highly encouraged. Cost for registration is $30 for each adult and varies for children, with all proceeds going to the Olive K. Britt Endowment for Emergency Animal Care and Boys & Girls Johnson Dental Clinic. Cost also includes professional bike tune-up before the ride, snacks along the course, a T-shirt, and lunch afterwards with the possibility of numerous prizes. There is also a prize for both the individual and the team that raises the most money. For more information about the ride itself visit http://2012rhv.yolasite.com/ or https://conferences.bus.oregonstate.edu/Conference/ride-heart-valley/registration to register.

See you there!!
