We'd like to invite you to a very special Adventure Cycling gathering in Eugene on Thursday, April 8 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Adventure Cycling's Jim Sayer and Jenn Milyko will be in town to unveil the brand new 2,400 mile Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route and to share the latest news on bicycle travel and adventures in North America (and perhaps beyond!). This will be a grand celebration with our friends at REI, which provided financial support for route research. We are especially excited because the Sierra Cascades route takes the Adventure Cycling Route Network over 40,000 miles – to our knowledge, the largest mapped bicycle-friendly route system in the world!

Join us at REI's Store in central Eugene for this important event. Refreshments will be provided and the fun will begin at 7:00, with the program starting at 7:30. For directions, click on http://www.rei.com/stores/43 -- or call (541) 465-1800.

Please RSVP by April 5th by responding to this email or calling me, Beth Petersen, at 800-755-2453 x 211. We also encourage you to invite cycling colleagues, other friends or family. The event is free and open to the public.

We are looking for a few volunteers to help with the event and prepping the gathering location. Please contact Beth Petersen at bpetersen@adventurecycling.org or 800-755-2453 ext. 210 if you are interested.

Thanks and hope to see you there.

Happy riding,
