Bike Ride for Kenya: Vancouver-San Diego
« on: March 20, 2010, 07:37:36 pm »
The 2010 Kourage Ride http://www.kourageride.org begins July 1st in Vancouver, Canada and end 1800 miles later in San Diego, California on July 27th.  Partial rides are available and are listed below.  We do follow Adventure Cycling Routes.

The Kourage Ride is fully supported with all food and lodging provided.  Riders do not carry any gear and there is no camping.  The Kourage Ride team supports riders from registration to the finish line including assisting with training, fundraising, and on each mile along the route!

The purpose of the Kourage Ride is to raise funds for Kourage, Inc a non-profit organization that reduces poverty in Kenya through creating jobs and fostering entrepreneurship.

We would love for you join us this summer.
