Jack Kriz is riding his bike again to raise awareness and funds for the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED). He’s participating in a group ride, Cycle Oregon, Sept. 8-15. His journey will take him 383 miles in northeast Oregon with an elevation gain of 23,612 feet! He’ll traverse deep canyons and mountains trails for his week-long journey.


“For me, it will be a quite arduous trip with 24,000 feet of total elevation gain in about 400 miles. On the second day alone, we climb almost 7,000 feet in 80 miles! The saving grace may be that Cycle Oregon is a fully supported ride, which means I do not have to carry 40-50 pounds of clothing, food and shelter on my bike as I ride each day. It’s a different kind of a trip than what I have undertaken before with fundraising in mind. Yes, I am riding a long way, but it’s with 2,000 other people! – Jack Kriz

Here’s the route for Jack’s journey through northeast Oregon.
