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 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.

Blackberry bRamble Post-Ride Celebration
Whether you’ve chosen the 100 mile Wolf Creek Century, the 62 mile Poodle Creek Metric Century, the 40 mile Orchard Point Loop or the 10/20 mile community ride you’ll arrive back at the Hilyard Center where you’ll find a bike celebration in progress, and of course, your free pie and ice cream reward (and beer!). Local vendors, with great food, community booths, children’s crafts and the Beer Garden for the adults will all be part of the celebration.
Directions to the Ride
If you are driving, you can park at the LTD park and ride lot at Amazon Parkway and E 29th St. If you are coming from out of town on Interstate 5, take the E. 30th Avenue exit (Lane Community College), then drive west on E. 30th Avenue to Hilyard Street (approximately 3 miles). Continue thru the light at Hilyard and take a right at the next light to enter the parking lot. There will be volunteers to greet and direct you.
The Blackberry bRamble is presented with special thanks to our Sponsors and Partners.
