Will YOU ride for food

RAH 2016 Graphic DesignTop 3 Reasons to Go to RAH!

Imagine you are on your bike riding down a country road. You come to a fork in the road. You have a decision to make. Will YOU ride for food? Here are a few great reasons to say, “Yes!”

  1. Fun ride with friends old & new – different route every year, free breakfast and $10 discount on lunch at Five Guys, a rider gift bag for the first 150 people registered, lots of prizes to win and auction items to bid on, live band, incentive gifts for our fundraisers and a free ride shirt with your $50 registration.
  2. You can ride for FREE with a minimum of $35 in collected donations from friends, families, co-workers…
  3. Great local cause – 100% of the funds raised by ride participants will go directly to Eden Food for Change to provide food to hungry families in our community. Our sponsors completely cover the cost of the event! Did you know that for every $50 you collect the food bank can provide the food for a family of four for a week.
