Tonya Roe Memorial Ride

Sorella Forte member Tonya Roe will be remembered by her cycling sisters during a memorial ride on Saturday, July 17, 2021.

Tonya Roe was a Sorella Forte cyclist.

Tonya Roe is seen here in a cyclocross race, one of her favorite events. She passed away earlier this year.

Roe died January 1, 2021, in Portland, Ore., after a battle with cancer. She was 52 years young. In our years together, the club shared many, many memories with her. We miss Roe’s spirit, her kindness, her dedication to the sport of cycling and women’s fitness, her laughter and most of all her friendship. 

The ride begins at Glen Otto Park in Troutdale, Ore., at 10 a.m. Members will ride to Women’s Forum via the Old Historic Highway, with an optional return on a longer route along Bull Run Road.
