We are a cycling couple, and cycling has been a big part of our lives for awhile now. It has become such an important aspect of our lives that we have decided to exchange our wedding vows during Cycle Oregon. After Wednesday's ride in Bandon, we plan to get married on the beach at 5 p.m. (The beach at the end of Madison - a short ride from camp) All who care to, are welcome to attend our ceremony.

Wow! These are cool. We found one like this for Matt, but where did you find the female version? Thank you, Glenna :)

Way to go. My wife and I were married at a Fish Derby outside of Truckee, CA 14 years ago. We were part of the organizing and catering team that put the Derby on. Wife always said (when we were single), "When (id) we get married I want to wear jeans and a T-shirt and go fishin'. SO, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Only three people besides us knew it was going to happen except some invited family. Got a lot of comments from guys, "Now that's the way to get married." We had oer 200 attendees so a lot of fun.

Congrats you two.

P.S.-Might have been cool to get married on the C.O. stage after announcements and before the bands so you could dance afterwards.

Yes, Getting married right after the announcements sounded good to me, but Matt wanted something a little more private than that. :) So the beach at 5 PM was the best I could think of. We are so looking forward to Cycle Oregon, getting married, all of it. Thank you for the congradulations!

Want to THANK Michael and Laurie for the fabulous Cycle Oregon coffee mugs! They rocks! We didn't get them back from the relatives who were helping us with extras until yesterday. What a kind thing to do! THANK YOU SO MUCH....Our wedding was perfect for us. :)

Suzi - There are some photos on the Cycle Oregon Facebook site, and Cardasphotography http://cardasphotography.typepad.com/ph ... _and_matt/

I can't figure out how to upload them here. Also, send me a facebook friend request and I have a ton on my site, of course. Glenna Van Buskirk, as well as quite a few Cycle Oregon pics. :)

Matt and Glenna,

Congratulations!

It was yet one more memorable Cycle Oregon experience to go down to the beach in Bandon and witness your vows. Thank you for inviting the CO family. Best wishes to both of you, and we hope to see you on next years ride. (Laurie was a one day rider guest this year, next year she's planning on being an official rider.) Enjoy the CO mugs!

Michael and Laurie
