You think you like riding bikes? Well, these people REALLY like riding bikes.
Yesterday was the start of a cross-border fundraiser to benefit both the American Red Cross and Canadian Red Cross. The Ride for Red is a 4000 km (2485 mile) bike tour from Calgary, AB to Santa Monica, CA. The goal is to raise 1 million dollars for each organization. Four full time riders (Miss Canada and three Olympians), 20 celebrity riders and various day riders will participate.
What I’m most excited about is that the ride is coming through Portland on Oct. 15-16. Ummmm…and have you seen the photos of the riders? I’m betting you wouldn’t kick any of them out of your bobsled. Nice picks, Red Cross.
In any case, you can follow the team’s progress online via any of these sites:
Hopefully we’ll get some photos of their PDX visit next month!
