Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Optum Pro Cycling Team Silent Auction at Goodlife Sunday

One of the strongest teams at this year's Cascade Cycling Classic, Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies, is hosting a silent auction 6 pm Sunday, July 21 at GoodLife Brewing to support World Bicycle Relief, a far-reaching bike charity program. The nonprofit seeks to empower and strengthen rural communities in Africa through bike donations. Sunday, frame sets, wheels and other team gear will be up for grabs.

Optum is home to Bend's Alex Candelario, a rider who's long been known as one of the best sprinters in the domestic peloton. Look for Candelario to lead out one of Optum's young sprinters during Saturday night's downtown crit (men start at 7pm).

Oregonians Jade Wilcoxson and Brianna Walle, two of the fastest women in America, are on Optum's women's team and have, thus far, posted impressive results at the CCC. At Thursday's 16-mile time trial, Walle finished fourth, 1:09 back, and Wilcoxson took fifth, 1:14 behind winner Alison Powers, NOW and Novartis team.
