It's time for another humpday giveaway. Today, when you donate to support the U.S. Bicycle Route System, you'll also be entered into a sweepstakes to win one of two Raptor or Raven 6 packs donated by Osprey.*
I also want to tell you today about a meet-up opportunity in San Francisco. Right now, Team Adventure Cycling, which includes Caroline Paulsen, Jameson Henkle, and John Crowe, led by team captain Alison Riley, are heading down the Pacific Coast on Climate Ride California, raising money and riding for the U.S. Bicycle Route System. Join them for a Climate Ride Bike Rally at San Francisco City Hall on Thursday, May 23. There are two ways to participate on Thursday, May 23, 2013:
11am: All riders will gather at Sports Basement Presidio (610 Old Mason Road in the Marina) for an 11:15am en masse departure to San Francisco City Hall. Be sure to arrive with a bicycle for this segment. Note: Riders will pedal all together from there along the Marina, through Fort Mason, and up Polk Street to Civic Center plaza in front of City Hall -- please obey traffic laws and stop for lights.
12 Noon: Rally at City Hall and Greeting of Riders -- Keynote Speaker: Paul Hawken
So if you're in the San Francisco area and want to meet up with Alison and her Climate Ride Adventure Cycling team, visit the Climate Ride blog for full rally details.
