Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS 10th Anniversary Ride September 25 & 26, 2010

Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on July 5, 2010

We got an email from Keith Hobbs, Public Relations Co-Chair for Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS, asking us to promote their ride and raffle. We think that the Lone Star Ride is for a great cause, so we’re more than happy to promote it over here. Their message:

SAVE THE DATE – New BFR Ride Event!

Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on January 17, 2010

Now that Bike Friendly Richardson is building up steam, we’d like to do another ride event. This time we will be doing a fun run called the Raffle Ramble.

SAVE THE DATE: Feburary 20, 2010

Brief Description: This will be 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 Ramble will be a fun ride to various points in Richardson where participants will collect raffle tickets. Those tickets can be used to win cool prizes.

Who can ride: Everybody; All skill levels

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

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.

We’re still working out the details. Stay tuned for an official announcement and a list of sponsors to the event.
