Go for a bike ride, enjoy some microbrews with friends or family, and support arts education all in one fell swoop! Impossible you say? Not if you purchase a ticket for the BrewCycle Benefit Ride on Sunday May 11th. 

BrewCycle combines two of Portland’s favorite activities into one — biking and drinking microbrews — as they take people around on a giant bicycle built for 15, stopping at pubs along the way. On May 11th, The Right Brain Initiative is joining in on the fun and partnering with BrewCycle to support arts education.

There are several ways you can help support us through this event:

  • Purchase one or more seats on a bike! Grab yourself, grab your friends, grab your mom (it is Mother’s Day after all). Select from either the 1-3pm or 5-7pm time slots. $20 from each of your tickets purchased will be donated by the wonderful people at BrewCycle to Right Brain to help support our arts-in-schools programming. Additionally, your ticket includes one free drink at the BrewStop bar at the end of the bike ride!
  • Enjoy a cold beer at any point during the day on May 11th at the BrewStop bar, and BrewCycle will donate $1 of each of these drinks sold to Right Brain.
  • Sponsor a bike! If you don’t think you can make it out for the ride, or you want to make this a staff team building or client affinity event, sponsor a bike, and see your name and logo listed on the bike, on our blog, and in our newsletter. If you’re interested in sponsoring a bike, contact Rebecca Burrell at for details.
  • Last but not least, if none of the above works for you and you’re feeling generous, feel free to simply make a donation.

With your help, if we can fill up three bikes and sell a few beers, we’ll raise $1,000! Throw in some sponsors and we’ll raise over $2,000 toward arts education in public schools of the Portland metro area. On top of all of this, your gift will be generously matched by the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund.

Bike around NW Portland with friends. Enjoy some craft microbrews. And raise money for a good cause, all on one beautiful Sunday.
