2016 Alice Awards + Auction
We’re growing and so is the annual Alice Awards + Auction! Join us for both the Awards + Auction and newly added after party (Alice Encore) where we’ll be revealing our new logo, dancing, playing games and celebrating going multimodal.
When: Saturday, September 24th from 5:30-11:30 p.m. (includes Alice Encore)
Where: The North Warehouse (723 N Tillamook St., Portland)
What: An evening of celebration with…
- A room full of heroes: Including you! This event brings together our community, and is a chance to celebrate together how far we’ve come and and where we’re going.
- Silent Auction + Raffle: From 5:30 – 6:45 p.m. you’ll have the opportunity to win a great selection of items and packages.
- Food + Drinks: Complimentary appetizers and drinks will be available during the Silent Auction and Raffle, including beer, wine, a signature cocktail, and non-alcoholic beverages.
- Alice Awards + Auction: Our program kicks off at 6:45 p.m., and will start with dinner courtesy of Steve Brown and Spin Events, followed by a Live Auction full of experience packages that will take winners across Oregon and beyond. There will be an opportunity to pledge your support in the next phase of our work, and Alice Award winners will be celebrated for their work in getting our region where we are now.
- Alice Encore (after party): We are keeping the party going from 8:30 – 11:30 p.m. with our newly added after party, Alice Encore. This is an opportunity for even more of our friends to come celebrate and have fun! Your $30 ticket (included in the Alice Awards + Auction ticket price) includes a complimentary drink ticket and food. There will be dancing, lots of games (such as a life-sized Connect Four and gold sprints), and the big reveal of our new brand. You’ll also have the option to take it easy by the bonfire with a cup of Nossa Familia coffee.
Join us as we award the winners, honor our past, reflect on our current work, and invigorate our members, supporters, volunteers, and staff for what’s to come. Proceeds of the evening will help launch a statewide Safe Routes to School For Every Kid campaign that will prioritize Title 1 (low income) schools in Oregon.
Can’t buy a ticket but want to party with us? Sign up for a volunteer shift and get in on the action! There’s a variety of shifts and activities to choose from.
Cycle Oregon 2017 Ride – #1 Wristband plus Tent & Porter Service
You’re #1 with the 2017 Cycle Oregon #1 wristband plus tent and porter service. The 2017 week-long ride will mark Cycle Oregon’s 30th Anniversary and is sure to sell out. This is your opportunity to secure the #1 spot on next year’s yet-to-be announced ride where you will travel in style through Oregon’s countryside.
Upon arrival at camp each night, after a long day of riding, your #1 wristband will come in handy as you skip the trip to the baggage truck and forgo having to setup your tent. Cycle Oregon will handle your accommodations at a prime camping spot, setting up your tent and placing your luggage inside.
Be #1 and secure your spot before registration opens!

Women & Wheels Deluxe Package
This package is for women who want to ride and work on bikes in style!
Start with a $100 gift certificate toward a class, summer camp, or workshop with Gracie’s Wrench. Keep your wrenching skills sharp with Bicycling Magazine’s Big Book of Cycling for Beginners, written by Gracie’s Wrench owner, Tori Bortman.
Pair that with a Gladys Bikes saddle library membership that will allow you to try out a variety of bike saddles until you find the right one to keep!
You’ll also up your style ante with apparel and gear from Nau, It’s Only Love Active Wear, Nutcase Helmets, and Po Campo.
Top it all off with a brand new bike courtesy of PUBLIC Bikes and Crank Bicycles. Chose from either the PUBLIC C7 (the classic Dutch city bike) or V7 (multi-speedy city bike).
Kids’ Bike Package
Surprise your kid (or niece or nephew) with a new bike, bike trailer, and awesome bike gear!
Get $550 to spend on an Islabikes kids’ bike. Getting that detail just right is crucial for any rider, but even more crucial on bikes made to suit the demands of fast-developing and easily distracted minds and bodies.
You can tote around a little one (or two) with the hardworking Honey Bee bike trailer from Burley. It features seating for one or two children and includes a 1-Wheel Stroller Kit so you can convert from a bike trailer to a stroller.
You’ll also get some great kids’ gear from Showers Pass and Nutcase Helmets. Safety and style, your kid can have it all.
Five-Day Custom Italian Cycling Vacation for Two
Experience Italy’s epic riding, mouth-watering cuisine, and beautiful countryside on a private, five-day custom bike tour for two with LifeCycle Adventures.
All bike tours are customized for you: dates, ride distances, and style of lodging. During your bike tour, they take care of all the logistics, and support vans are always nearby so you can simply enjoy the freedom of cycling at your own pace.
Ride from one midieval hilltop town to the next, cycle along the picture-perfect, cypress-lined lanes in the Val d’Orcia, experience 1,00 year-old olive groves – it’s up to you! At the end of each day, you’ll savor delicious Italian food and wine.
This is the perfect way to experience Siena and Florence!
The View is Beautiful:
Private Hot Air Balloon Ride for Two
Experience the Willamette Valley as you’ve never experienced it before: in a hot air balloon!
Start your day by watching Vista Balloon Adventures inflate your balloon – an amazing sight in itself; you can even help if interested. Then, you and three guests will head up and over the picturesque winemaking hills of the Willamette Valley and the twisting Willamette River, with ten mountain peaks within your view (on a clear day). Choose from flight at dawn or sunset.
After sailing through the skies, you’ll land; where you can watch crews deflate the balloon before driving you back to the launch site, where you’ll be served a gourmet catered brunch.
Check it off your bucket list, and fly away with Vista Balloon Adventures.
Car Roof Rack System Filled with Beer
Many adventures await you, all you need is to pack up the car and go! Make room on the inside for you and your friends. All your gear can go on the outside of your car, inside Yakima’s SkyBox Pro 12, with a base rack from Whispbar, and your bikes on two Forklift bike mounts from Yakima. ReRack, in Portland, will happily mount your new rack, SkyBox, and bike mounts for free!
Take your new rack system on a mountain biking or bikepacking trip courtesy of The Mountain Shop. They will hook you up with two, five-day adventure bike rentals (either mountain- or bikepacking-specific) with full bikepacks.
To top it all off, Hopworks Urban Brewery will fill your SkyBox with 100 pint-sized cans of beer!
Train Like a Pro:
Aeolus Endurance Sport’s Cycling Camp for One
Get a jump on your summer cycling plans by attending Aeolus Endurance Sport’s Marin Cycling Camp for May 14-19, 2017 in Mill Valley, California.

With an emphasis on technique and bike handling, recreational riders will find the camp highly beneficial.

The camp includes a coach-rider ratio of no more than 1:7.
Package includes all lodging, meals, bike transport from Portland, full tuition for one, and your first massage.
Summer Fun in Sunriver:

Subject to availability between 9/26/16-6/1/17, excluding holiday periods. Pet-friendly with pet fee.
While there’s plenty of time to relax in Sunriver, this package will keep you moving. Enjoy a Singletrack Sampler for Two with Cog Wild Bicycle Tours. This ride combines the best of what Central Oregon has to offer – from the world famous Phil’s Trail, to lesser-known singletrack loved by locals. Half-day tour includes guided 3-hour mountain bike tour, shuttle to trailhead, and snacks and beverages. Good for the 2017 season, May-September.
