Hey Racers and Clubbers,
This year Pedal is supporting an MS 150 ride team. The ride is 2 days out and back from Westminster to Ft. Collins. Not only does the ride support a great cause, but it has fantastic support along the way including mechanics, great food (all meals are included with the entry fee) and even snow-cones! The entry fee for the ride is currently $69, but will go up incrementally the longer you wait. It requires a fundraising minimum of $400 per rider. The route option has historically ranged from 70 to 120 miles per day. Air-conditioned dorm rooms in Ft. Collins are $80 for a single or $120 for a double room (I highly recommend air conditioning, if it’s available). More details about the ride can be found here:
I’m hoping that as a team we will be able to make the individual fundraising a breeze by sharing amongst the team. Once riders reach their $400 minimum, they can steer donations they might receive towards a teammate that needs a boost. In the past I’ve seen a number of Pedal jerseys on the ride and this year I’m hoping to see a peloton! If you cannot make the ride this year, I hope you will consider making a donation to a teammate.
The team name is “Pedal MS” and “ridebikes” is the password.
If you join the team or if you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com.
