In 2017, Ryder Murphy was the youngest rider to finish the Seattle-To-Portland (STP) bike ride. Hosted by Cascade Bike Club, STP is a nationally-renowned annual event held every July that attracts upwards of 10,000 participants and traverses 204 miles. Ryder was just 7 years old and rode a child-sized Specialized Hot Rock bicycle with 20" wheels and six gears. This year, he plans to do it again...but, his mission is even greater
Ryder wants his cycling adventures to be more than just a personal accomplishment. He wants to make a difference. Ryder believes everyone should have enough food, especially kids and their families. "I want to use my abilities to serve others. I'm a kid...but kids can help!"
During STP this July, Ryder is partnering with GHP FISH and dedicating his ride to raise awareness and money for kids and families in the Peninsula community. Ryder wants to share that, as a community, everyone can make a difference in the lives of their neighbors.

He did it for the cheers. All 2,090 of them.
Also, for the candy.
Ryder Murphy, 7, doesn't know if he's the youngest rider to complete all 203 miles of the STP Bicycle Classic. All he knows is that it was fun.
The Gig Harbor kid, along with his father Tom, 44, spent Saturday and Sunday riding in the Northwest's largest two-day bicycling event.
