The Beard enters the final stretch today of his 174-mile bike ride from Seattle, Washington to Astoria, Oregon.
The day’s leg kicked off at 8:30am in South Bend, Washington and riders are headed 50 miles south on historic highway US 101 and are expected to arrive in Astoria about 3:00pm this afternoon. The day concludes with a celebration tonight at the Rogue Public House on Astoria’s historic Pier 39.
International media and Beard fans are asked to refrain from flash photography while the Beard is riding as he is in training for the People’s Coast Arthritis Classic.
However, he may be available for photo opportunities and autographs during some of his unscheduled stops. Members of the public can support the Beard’s ride on his personal donation page. His goal is to raise $2,500 for the fight against arthritis.
The Beard thanks you in advance for your cooperation.
