November 10, 2014 – Portland, Ore. – This November, get ready for the bicycle event of the season. The Bicycle Ball is a fundraiser for the nonprofit, Community Cycling Center. Celebrating 20 years of broadening access to bicycles, the Cycling Center is hosting this fundraiser to support the next generation of bike riders in Portland.
