Two ways to ride your bike and support Oso landslide relief: Family bike ride Saturday + STP auction

The devastation from the Highway 530 Landslide is difficult to fathom. It is one of the most deadly disasters in Washington State’s history, and families have been torn apart and left without homes and possessions. Search and clean-up efforts have been daunting, and there’s an overwhelming amount of work left to do.

The most helpful thing you can do is to donate to relief efforts. You can do so online right now.

There are also two options for you to help raise funds for relief efforts by riding your bike. The Marysville YMCA has decided to donate proceeds from their All-In Family Bike Ride this Saturday to the Oso community. Cascade Bicycle Club is also auctioning off a couple spots in their sold-out Seattle-to-Portland ride and donating the proceeds to relief.

The Marysville YMCA had already planned their first ever All-In Family Bike Ride on the Centennial Trail for Saturday (April 5).

While the proceeds from the ride were supposed to benefit their YMCA branch, the Oso tragedy just a couple dozen miles away lead them to donate the proceeds there instead.

The ride features route options for people of all ages and abilities. The longest route is 60-miles, and the shortest is 8.

You can register online. Entry is $35.

Cascade auctioning spots in sold-out STP

Cascade Bicycle Club is also helping to raise funds for Oso by auctioning off the few spots they have left for their sold-out Seattle-to-Portland bike ride this summer. So if you want to score a spot and support Oso relief at the same time, this is your chance.

The next spots will go up for auction via eBay Tuesday evening. The auctions will close Sunday.

From Cascade:

If you missed out on STP registration or simply want to contribute to a truly important cause, please dig deep and show your support. And because the retail value of these registrations is $120, any amount you bid above that is tax-deductible.

Our deepest sympathies go out to those who have lost their lives, livelihoods and loved ones to this tragedy. And thank you to the volunteers and emergency responders who are working tirelessly to provide safety and comfort to those affected.
