On behalf of the Valley Girls Ride Committee, we invite your participation in our Eleventy Annual Valley Girls Ride, a cycling event hosted by the Central Valley Cycling Charitable Association, which has tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Information regarding our 501(c)(3) and ID number is enclosed. This year our beneficiaries are Exceptional Parents Unlimited, Camp Sunshine Dreams, Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 15, 2016, and will offer five courses:
- Hilly Metric PLUS;
- Flat Metric;
- 44-mile course; and
- 30 mile
All rides will begin and end at Wild Water Adventures, and will include an after ride luncheon. There will be rest stops along the way with tasty snacks, and smiling volunteers to serve the riders and make sure that a good time is had by all. We expect approximately 400 participants as well as numerous volunteers to staff rest stops, provide bike patrol on the courses, serve food at the luncheon, and ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable ride.
The event is being held in honor of Marsha Sorensen, beloved friend, and avid cyclist, who passed away in August 2005. It was Marsha’s dream to host an annual "all girls" cycling event in the Central Valley--an event that would attract both experienced cyclists and novices.
We are committed to presenting a quality event that will foster a sense of community and bring positive attention to the Valley, but we need your help to achieve our goal.
