From the Warrior Society Weekly News

Announcing the 4th Annual 50 Mile Ride for Project Rwanda

When: Saturday, April 10, 2010

Where: Staging and post-ride party at Cooks Corner (19152 Santiago Canyon Road Trabuco Canyon, CA 92679).

Register: Online at www.50mileride.com

Entry Fee: $50 (5 Mile Fun Ride – $25). Online registration closes April 8. All entries receive free custom dri-fit t-shirt.

Check-in: Avoid the lines on event day – pick up rider bags on Friday April 9 from 11am to 6pm at Rock n Road Cyclery (on Santa Margarita Pkwy in Mission Viejo).

Purpose: To raise funds and build awareness for Project Rwanda (www.ProjectRwanda.org). Those that have participated before know that the 50 Mile Ride is a “ride”, not a race. Cyclists participate for a lot of reasons: some for the challenge of riding further on a mountain bike than ever before, some because they love the Project Rwanda cause, some for the fun of sharing the day with tons of their mtb buddies. The event has raised almost $100,000 for Project Rwanda in its first three years. These funds are making a huge difference in furthering the economic development of Rwanda through initiatives based on the bicycle as a tool and symbol of hope.

50 mile, 25 mile, and 5 mile fun ride options are available. 50 mile option starts at 7:00am (check-in at 6:15am), 25 mile option starts at 9:00am (check-in at 8:15am), and 5 mile family fun ride starts at 11:00am (check in at 10:30am). Details at www.50mileride.com.

Post-Ride Party: After the ride stick around for a BBQ sponsored by Cook’s Corner, starting at noon. There will be a HUGE raffle (starting at approx 3:00pm) with tons of cool prizes including a Grand Prize raffle of a Trigon full-carbon bike valued at over $9000. Plus, there’ll be massage therapists, booths from local bike shops, and a live auction for a genuine Project Rwanda Coffee Bike. Bring your friends and family to share in the fun!
