GEARs cycling club would like to invite you to join us for our 19th annual Blackberry bRamble ride. The Blackberry bRamble, a celebration of cycling in beautiful Lane County, returns to Amazon Park on August 6th, 2017. The Blackberry bRamble has long been known for its scenic routes, extraordinary food at the rest stops, reliable support, and free blackberry pie and ice cream at the finish (and a free local craft beer from Claim 52 for the 21 years & up folks!). Proceeds from the bRamble go to help support local causes such as Safe Routes to School, Eugene Adaptive Recreation, Center for Appropriate Transport and Crow Elementary School.
