You’ll see more cyclists tooling around Bend over the next several days as the 2011 USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships are happening through Sunday. Micah Rice, the Managing Director for National Events for USA Cycling says they have been looking forward to the Bend event all year, because the conditions are always perfect. "We’ve got about almost 950 unique participants that are here with their families and of course spectators that have come from some of the surrounding communities for this five day event." Rice says the big draw is always the criterium, and this time it's two days long. Thursday's criterium is in Northwest Crossing for male riders 60-plus and women 40-plus. Friday's criterium will be in downtown Bend for the elite men 30 to 59 and women 30 to 39. Watch for street closures over the next several days.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
