SAVE-THE-DATE for 2017: Saturday, June 3, 2017 

Pioneer Century, Saturday, June 4, 2016 Recap

 

“Whew…, that was a scorcher”. A comment overheard repeatedly during the 2016 edition of the Portland Wheelmen’s Pioneer Century. The event co-coordinators Benn & Ann along with the "new guy” Brian, wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank all of the cyclists, volunteers and the staff of the Clackamas County Event Center for your determined and dare we say "Pioneering" spirit both on and off the bike during this past weekend. That spirit and determination is the core of what makes our humble yet mighty event ride the standard by which others aspire to. We’ll be back at it soon enough in order to bring you an even better edition of the 2017 Pioneer Century so be sure to visit this page often for details. That’s all for now so if you’ll excuse us, there’s a patch of shade, some chairs and a pitcher of Lemonade that requires our attention….

 

ABOUT THE PIONEER CENTURY

The Pioneer Century is named to reflect the history of the Champoeg, Canby, and Molalla areas. The ride starts from the Clackamas County Fairgrounds - 694 NE 4th Avenue, Canby, Oregon.

Rich farmland and timber brought the pioneers to this area and this same beauty draws cyclists today. The Pioneer Century offers great routes whether you seek a social ride or personal best.

A testimonial from one of our Pioneer Century riders:

“Saturday was my third Pioneer Century, but the first time I've done the whole 100. I just wanted to say thanks for the great job you guys do putting that on. Every year, the staff is so friendly, the route well marked, excellent maps, the support stations are the best, I mean that sincerely; perfect snack selections and the super clean port-a-potties with wash stations, the drinking water stations, clean and easy. You guys are the benchmark for supported rides. Not to mention the tasty lunch.  And how you guys nail the weather every year is beyond me. Looking forward to next year, keep up the great work!”
