The Mt. Bachelor Ski Education Foundation (MBSEF), with the support of U.S. Bank, will be holding Central Oregon's largest sporting event, the 28th Annual U.S. Bank
Pole Pedal Paddle, May 15, 2004. The U.S. Bank Pole Pedal Paddle is the largest fundraiser for the Mt. Bachelor Ski Education Foundation. MBSEF is a not-for-profit

The course for 2004 will be as follows: the start will be at the top of the Red Chair with the exchange point to cross-country at the West Village Lodge area. The
cross-country ski leg is approximately 8 km with a 22-mile bike ride into town as the third stage. The run leg is on the beautiful scenic trail along the Deschutes River,
approximately 8 km followed by a 2 mile river stage, this time between the new Healy and Colorado Bridges. The canoe/kayak leg will enter across the river from the new
Logdeck Park (access from Columbia Street). Participants may use a canoe or kayak (must not have oarlocks). The final leg of the race is a 1/3mi. sprint from the
