You are invited to participate in our fun run called The Raffle Ramble.

When: Saturday, Feburary 20, 2010
Arrive: 1:00
Ride: 2:00-4:00
Start/Finish: Richardson Bike Mart – Coit at Campbell – parking lot
Pace: This is a self-paced, casual ride for ALL skill levels
Who can ride: Everybody
Description: This is a charity event. Our friend William Neumann was brave enough to take on the 2010 Tour du Rouge, a six day bike ride from Houston to New Orleans that raises money for American Red Cross Chapters along the Gulf Coast.

The Raffle Ramble will be a fun ride to help raise money for William’s Red Cross Fund. Participants, who have donated, will go to various points in Richardson to collect raffle tickets. Those tickets can be used to win cool prizes. The more stops you make, the more tickets you get, the better your chance to win.

How much: Ride for free. However, to participate in the raffle to win prizes, we request a donation to William’s Red Cross Fund:
$15 Donation – Early Registration (By January 31)
$20 Donation – Between February 1 and event day.

Your donation will serve as your registration to the Ramble. William will keep a list, so make sure to leave your name when you do.

ALL the donations will be going to the American Red Cross Chapters along the Gulf Coast. Even if you can’t participate in the Ramble, please help us get William to his goal.

William has been working hard at securing some great prizes from: Chrome, Knog, Road ID, Rido, Pedro’s, Urban Velo, Sufferfest, Jittery Joe’s Coffee, BikeCoffee.net, Walz Cycling Caps, Adventure Cycling and Lupine. Come out, enjoy a ride, support a great cause and win some cool prizes.

UPDATE: We added a Facebook Event Page. Please RSVP if you can.

Also: If anyone wants to make an offline donation (via check, cash, etc.) they should email William wneumann (at) gmail.com and he can get them a pledge form and a receipt.

NEW UPDATE: We added some brief instructions and a suggested route map.

    Hey everybody. I just wanted to post a quick update and let you all know that a couple of new sponsors have joined the effort. Walz Caps has, rather literally, thrown their hats into the ring, and Adventure Cycling will help you out if you get lost on your next weekend ride out to San Diego or are looking for the best way to see the Continental Divide.

    So we’ve got even more great prizes to go along with our already great cause. Sign up for the Raffle Ramble and help to make it a great ride.
