Join us for the LIOTR Coast Classic Brevet
This summer, we’re inviting you to join us on the first two days of our favorite ride. It’s long, it’s challenging, it might rain. No promises, just a commitment to ride 200 miles in 2 days, rain or shine to raise money to end cancer.
Registration is a $300 donation and limited to 20 riders. Hotel stay at Inn at Wecoma and one snack stop halfway through Day 1 are included with registration. All proceeds go directly to the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy. On Day 2, you’ll be on your own. This will be an unsupported ride, so make sure to pack many snacks and tubes! At the end of Day 1, we’ll enjoy a beer on the beach and eat dinner at Peurto Vallarta Mexican Restaurant.
Day 2: Lincoln City to Portland
A return route of XXX miles and X,XXX ft. of climbing crossing the cascade range via _______ rd. with the option to shorten and take the train back to Portland from Hillsboro.

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. After hotel costs, the remainder of your $300 registration fee will be donated directly to ACGT.
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.”
Meet The Riders
Along on the ride will be eight experienced riders who have done their share of multi-day hundred mile rides. With multiple Leave It On The Road trips under our belts, we’ll be happy to share stories and tips for organizing your own long-distance rides and fundraisers! After Day 1, some will continue on down the coast headed toward San Francisco to pedal through a complete 800 mile journey. Randall Fransen will lead the Day 2 return group to Portland.
Donations and products may be purchased in our store with all proceeds benefitting the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy. ACGT's mission is to seek out and support revolutionary scientific research into the causes, treatment and prevention of all types of cancer using cells and genes as medicine.
