“I’ll be Riding my Bike for a Good Cause”
thru April 30
Sponsor,Would you sponsor me in a bike-a-thon? We are raising money for the Calistoga Family Center!Each year the Calistoga Bikeshop hosts a month-long activity called the
Challengewhere all the participants track their miles ridden on any sort of bicycle, be it on the road, in themountains, or even on a unicycle. At the end of the month there is a fun dinner and awardsceremony where we all feel like winners for having worked off some of the winter’s rust. Theperson who rides the most miles during the month is crowned
Grand April Fool.
This year we decided to make this event even more meaningful by using it as an opportunity toraise money for a worthy local charity – the Calistoga Family Center. The Calistoga Family Centeris a nonprofit organization offering a wide variety of services ranging from medical care, andcounseling to education for the Upper Valley community.
