Bosworth Scholars Announced
The Mark Bosworth Foundation offers scholarships to first time riders of The Classic in honor of Mark, a beloved father, husband, teacher, musician, cyclist and Cycle Oregon volunteer. This is the fourth year they’ve offered scholarships on our signature event and we couldn’t be prouder of the partnership.
Meet this year’s crop of excited Bosworth riders here. We’ll follow up on their experience in another newsletter later in the year. In the meantime, read about past Bosworth scholars here. And remember to share their story with someone you think might be a good fit for next year’s round of scholarships!

Once you’re comfortably back in the saddle, your first two miles will be retracing the last part of yesterday’s ride before you turn west and hop back on the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway. If the name is any indication, we’re in for some pretty spectacular views. ReadMore
