The "Ride for Kids" is just two weeks from tomorrow. To review, the San Francisco "Ride for Kids" will take place on Sunday, June 29, 2008. The police escorted ride with begin and end at the "Pleasanton Middle School", located at 5001 Case St, Pleasanton, CA. Registration costs $35 and will take place between 0800-0945 hrs. The ride will begin at 1000 hrs, Sharp! There will be light breakfast stuff available, and you'll be served a bag lunch after the ride.
After lunch, the "Celebration of Life" will begin, with awards and premiums distributed after the talks.
Like last year, the top prize is a Honda motorcycle, and you'll get a chance at winning it for every $300 you collect in donations. Last year, I was the lucky winner. Let's try to make this years event one to remember, because it will be the last San Francisco "Ride for Kids". Next year (2009), the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is combining the Sacramento and San Francisco rides, which will be known at the Northern California "Ride for Kids".
Next year the NorCal ride will take place on the 1st Sunday of October 2009, and it will start and finish at the "Solano Community College", in Fairfield, CA. If you'd like to join me for the ride to Pleasanton this year, meet me at the "Long's Parking Lot" in Walnut Creek.
The "Long's..." is located at the intersection of Olympic and California Blvds. Because my wife and I (along with several other members of CA VII and their spouses) are working the event, I'll be leaving "Longs" at 0800 hrs. So, if you'd like to join me, be on time! Of course, feel free to setup your own riding group(s) to the Pleasanton Middle School. I really don't care how you get there, just get there! We need everyone's help to make this the best San
Francisco ride ever!!!!
