The Lancette Memorial Ride is the vision of the friends and family of avid cyclist Teresa Wilson Beiser who tragically lost her life in 2009 when her estranged husband went on a shooting rampage at her place of work. The incident, which made national news, also shut down the city of Tualatin, all of the schools in the area and Meridian Park Hospital for a number of hours. In addition to Teresa, the gunman wounded two others and then took his own life leaving their 2 young children with the devastation of this murder/suicide.

In an effort to bring something positive to this tragic situation, these friends decided to create this ride and partner with Clackamas Women’s Services (CWS) as a way to both support our organization and inform people about issues surrounding domestic violence.

To train for this event, Riders in the Portland area can join a group of cyclist who meet every Sunday for rides. Each week we will explore different routes and increase the mileage every month. Rides begin in March. Contact Scott Weishaar <wallyball5@comcast.net>, This year the route is flat and fast. It’s an opportunity for seasoned cyclist to go for a PR. It’s wonderful for first timers to go the extra distance if they have not yet.
