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

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,, 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) and he can get them a pledge form and a receipt.

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