The Family ride is a great way to include all abilities in a fully-supported bike/trike/wheelchair/walking shoes adventure, and we want to make sure that it is the best experience for you and your whole team. That’s why we’re working with the Hillsboro Police Department to coordinate the ride.
Please register in advance so we know how many people to expect. We encourage you to gather pledges in support of Community Vision programs. Prizes will be awarded to the top fundraisers.

Riding a bike is a right of passage for most individuals. It is a pleasure and a freedom we as adults often take for granted and sometimes even forget. For many children and adults born with a developmental disability, it seems impossible. Nine years ago, two dedicated mothers brought the Bike First! program, in affiliation with Northwest Down Syndrome Association, to Portland to teach people with disabilities the skills needed to ride traditional bikes. The clinics have an 80% success rate! Bike First! is the host of the inclusive family event!
Some children and adults simply need modifications to traditional bikes to make cycling possible. Adventure Without Limits and Oregon Disability Sports will be hosting a FREE adaptive bike clinic at the Harvest Century. Participants can borrow one of their bikes for use during the event. After the clinic, AWL will be on-hand to showcase the technologies that make it possible for individuals with disabilities to ride.
Wheelchairs, Strollers, Walkers
We at Community Vision focus on people and their talents, dreams and abilities. If you share that philosophy, we’d like you to join us. Grab someone in your life and get ready to exercise and celebrate independence. Help support individuals to live in the home of their choice, to work a meaningful job, and achieve independence, pride, and community by raising money for our programs.
Volunteer & Cheer
Another fun way for your family to get involved is to volunteer on the course. There are many shifts and jobs available and it is always great to get friendly cheering from your loved ones as you make your way through the Harvest Century. If you choose to not join the activities on the routes, you are welcome to pack a picnic and enjoy the music and festive atmosphere for free!
