2019 Coast Classic
Portland, OR to San Francisco, CA
September 21th - 28st, 2019
800 miles, 8 days
About the Ride
Leave It On The Road hits the coast again riding from Portland, OR to San Francisco, CA! This time we’ve added even more friends with 14 friends joining in on the challenge. This is our favorite ride. That’s why we’re doing it again and rolling out to fundraise with even more people. It’s long, it’s hard, it will almost certainly rain. No promises, just a commitment to ride 100 miles every day, for 8 days rain or shine to raise money to end cancer. All riders pay their own travel, hotels, and meals. All funds raised go directly to the Alliance for Gene Cancer Therapy.
Leave It On The Road x Specialized Tarmac Repaint
On our way to San Francisco, we’ll be piloting our trusty Specialized Tarmacs. This year, @jakeszy went rogue and repainted his in a pearlescent gradient mesh of our team colors including custom painted Silca Impero Ultimate Frame Pump. Big thanks to our friend @shaunkosoy for his craftsmanship and time.

Riding to #endcancer
Gene therapy is the forefront of cutting edge technology to cure cancer. We’ve chosen AGCT, the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy to be our fundraising beneficiary. Their mission is to discover new ways to treat and defeat cancer. We are beyond excited to fuel their work.
In the words of AGCT Co-Founder, Edward Netter,
“We are confident that cancer gene therapies are moving towards a tipping point and that someday, sooner rather than later, cancer will be treated with far greater odds of success and less toxicity to the patient.”
Special bonus: this is going to be an annual ride moving forward and you’re invited!
We’ll be opening up applications to join us down the coast in early 2020.
Drop your email below and we’ll let you know when they’re open.
