People are invited to join in a celebration remembering one of Newport's greatest bicycle enthusiasts, Ken Dennis, who recently passed away.
The Ken Dennis Memorial Bike Ride will be held on Saturday, Sept. 15, beginning at noon at Bike Newport, 150 NW Sixth St. Those taking part will follow one of his favorite rides, the Yaquina Bay Road. The group will travel to Toledo and back, but people can go as far as they want.
Following the ride, there will be a celebration of the life of Ken Dennis, which is open to all — even non-bike riders. It will begin at 2 p.m. and will be held at Bike Newport. People are encouraged to bring a potluck dish to share.
