I’ll be representing Bike Friendly Richardson at the 2010 WildRide. Because I’m the designated BFR as a team, they’ve asked me to pull together some donations.

This is the last day to donate, so if you are in the mood to help out a great cause, click here to step up.

EDIT: Looks like they’ll be taking donations up until the event on May 15. It’s not too late to donate.

Richardson Wild Ride – May 15

Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on April 19, 2010

Every year Methodist Richardson Medical Center hosts the WildRide! Against Cancer. This year, BFR is going to join the ride and support the cause.

We set up a team and are welcoming anybody who wants to join. We need at least 3 more riders to complete the team, so just look for the Bike Friendly Richardson Team when you join or contact us for details.

The registration fee:
Team Riders (4 or more riders)- $25 each team member and each person is required to raise $100.

If you want to do the ride, but not as part of the BFR team, the registration is:
Adult Riders – $30 to April 30; $40 thereafter
Children under 12 – $15 to April 30; $20 thereafter
(I believe with no requirement to raise money).

As always, all are more than welcome to ride with our team. Given the casual nature of our group, we’re opting to do the shorter, 16 mile run. We’ll be doing our typical BFR pace.

We’re going to try and figure out a way to get some quick BFR T-shirts printed by the event for those joining the team.

DATE: May 15, 2010
TIME: 7:30 am (ride starts at 8:00 am)
WHERE: The start/finish of the ride and 5K walk/run is located in the Verizon parking lot – 2400 N. Glenville Drive

Click here to register for the ride. Just look for the Bike Friendly Richardson team if you want to join.

Disclaimer: This is not an official BFR event and all the proceeds are handled through the event organizers.
