Bridges to Breakers - Presented by The Harrington Family Foundation

Due to a conflict of dates, Bridges to Breakers has been postponed until 2017.
We look forward to seeing you next year!


Three summers ago Joey Harrington was hit by a car while riding his bike on the streets of Portland. The Harrington Family Foundation would like to channel the attention from this crash to create safer streets for bicyclists through education with the aim of reducing and prevent- ing injuries to children. The significance of the issue has inspired the Harrington Family Foundation to organize a signature event that raises both awareness and funds for bicycle safety.

Start and Finish:

The 100 mile ride will begin in St. Johns at the McMenamins from 7:00-8:00AM. We will ride over the St. John bridge and head west on HWY 30, towards the Oregon Coast to Gearhart, Oregon. There will be four rest stops approximately 20 miles apart between the start and finish that will provide food, water, bike repair and first aid resources. Security and police presence will ensure safety throughout the ride.

The ride will conclude at the McMenamins Sand Trap for a 'Beach Party Blast', which is located five miles north of Seaside along the Gearhart Golf Links, an 18-hole public golf course.

For those of you who want only a 50 mile bike ride, we will have a shorter route starting from the Birkenfield Country Store. This is our second rest stop and our lunch stop. Please let us know if you are interested in a shorter ride. Registration would start at 9:30am, and you would need to be on the course by 10:30am. For more information call Nancy Marshall at 503-929-9405
