Biking For Change: Use Your Favorite Hobby to Make a Difference

Love to bike? Want to make a difference? We created a list of some charity cycling events coming up in California in the next few months. Pick one or two, rally your community, and ride your heart out while supporting a cause you believe in.

April 22 – Cycle for Sight – Napa, California

The event will raise money for Saving Lives, a veteran rehabilitation program, and Enchanted Hills Camp for the Blind. The ride has three different routes, for 50, 25, and 15 miles of riding.

The ride will start off at Justin Seina High School, will wind along the vineyards and hills of Napa Valley, and will finish back at the school. The event will feature wine and beer tasting sessions (wouldn’t be Napa without it) coupled with local cuisines coming from various Napa Valley restaurants. The overall goal of the ride is to raise $100,000. Sign up today!
