BEND, OR -- After 38 consecutive years, the Cascade Cycling Classic, will not take place this year. One of Bend's best known sporting events, the Cascade Cycling Classic got new management last fall, and when Bowen Sports Performance took over it planned major changes. Those new programs are taking longer to implement than expected.

The handful of participants and sponsors who’ve signed up will receive a full refund. Organizers say the event will ride again in 2019. Bend's Worthy brewing will be the sponsor in 2019, and is looking forward to the race's return, with changes that include increased community involvement and programs aimed at attracting new cyclists.
