SKS USA presents Worst Day of the Year Ride in Portland, Oregon on February 15

SKS USA is the presenting sponsor of the 8th annual Worst Day of the Year Ride to be held in Portland, OR on February 15, 2009.

The ride, held around the date of Oregon's worst weather ever recorded (in 1933) features an 18-mile urban tour and 40-mile challenge route in one of the world's top cycling cities. The 3,000 participants will enjoy five stops along the route for warm drinks, snacks, soup and brew. This quirky urban ride has quickly become an annual tradition in this bicycle friendly city and cyclists participate rain or shine.

An estimated 1,500 participants will arrive at the event in costume to be awarded a free SKS X-Tra Dry fender.

The Worst Day of the Year Ride benefits the Community Cycling Center, a non-profit founded in 1994, whose goal it is to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits through hands-on programs, volunteer projects, and neighborhood bike shops, and whose belief is that the bicycle is a tool for empowerment and a vehicle for change. For more information, see www.communitycyclingcenter.org

Supporting sponsors of the event include: Bike Gallery, Bike N' Hike, REI, Wentworth SubaruCity, Gorge Delights, Nossa Familia Coffee, Laughing Planet Café, Lucky Lab Brewery, Spud and ORbike. Worst Day of the Year Ride is organized by Good Sport Promotions and more information can be found at www.worstdayride.com
