Donate to Ride to the Light! DO IT. »
Seriously, do it! A bunch of brave souls/fitness freaks are riding their bikes for the animals and all the money raised to sponsor them goes to the three amazing animal sanctuaries they’re riding through. It’s a nifty idea, and I like it! Since bike-riding terrifies both my face (my beautiful face!) and my laziness, I will not be there in person, but I will be there in pocketbook! That is, as soon as I get paid. When that happens, I am donating a large percentage of my paycheck to the ride. When you see how much I’ve given, you will once and for all understand exactly how fucking poor I am and then maybe, just maybe, you will buy me these FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON’T MAKE PEOPLE STARE AT MY FEET IN FLIP FLOPS ANY LONGER. Honestly, it’s another form of animal abuse if you choose to ignore me.
Now, I will let the good people of Ride to the Light properly explain how to get involved as that’s what I do these days. Trust me, it’s better than hearing my explanation which would most likely be: CHICKENS! BIKES! PIGS! MONEY! HELPING! TOGETHER! COWS!
We’re doing the route in reverse this year—leaving from Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary in Scio and riding to Out to Pasture in Estacada, then on to Portland for a cookout at Josh and Michelle Hooten’s house [Ed.: !!!!!!]. It’s gonna be great!
Come along for the ride or make a donation and help us reach (or even better, exceed) our goal of $15,000 for these three very worthy causes.

Guest post: Ride to the Light—participate or donate! Ow! »
Hi y’all! I know there must be at least a couple people here who like animals and bikes, right? (I mean, this IS commie liberal West Coast vegan cupcake heaven awesome San Francisco, CA.) But anyway, I’m hoping that if you do, you will support Ride to the Light, which is right around the corner!
The Ride to the Light is an annual 100-mile bike ride (a “century” in cycling terminology) to benefit Lighthouse Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, Out to Pasture Sanctuary, and Project Hope Sanctuary. Some fearless folks from PDX started it in 2009, and that ride raised over $10,000. We’re hoping to smash that record this year by raising $15,000.
The ride takes place on Saturday, Sept. 25. We’ll be leaving from the IDA office in Portland and riding to Out to Pasture in Estacada, Ore., then on to Lighthouse in Scio, Ore. Project Hope is in Mississippi, so we won’t be making a stop there, but they’ll be with us in spirit.
Come along for the ride, or make a donation and help us reach (or even better, exceed) our goal for these three very worthy causes. People from all over (including the Bay Area! Me! Me!) are coming on this fantastic voyage, and we’d really appreciate your support! Any donation is much appreciated and we’d love to see your name on the donation page.
Please also check out our Facebook fan page to find out more about the ride. We’ve got a blog as well! Here’s a video of last year’s ride, too!
