September 23 – October 1, 2016 | San Francisco to Los Angeles – Another successful California Coast Classic cycling tour for the Arthritis Foundation is in the books! This year over 180 riders from around the globe convened in San Francisco for the 16th year to raise over $1.2 million dollars and awareness for juvenile arthritis, research, and programming for those affected by the disease. Although it is my third consecutive year participating in this rigorous tour, it’s always a new and life changing experience to meet so many like-minded people who are willing to face the toils of the terrain in order to ride in honor for loved ones and others who are unable to physically take on the challenge themselves.
525+ MILES. 26,000+ FEET OF CLIMBING. 8 DAYS. 1 CAUSE.
Stay tuned as I post photos from the tour, as we rode every inch along the California coast from San Francisco back to Los Angeles. Thank you to everyone for all of your support before, during, and after we returned. Your love and support certainly does not go unnoticed. Until next time!
