Hi, we're Jessica Yeh and Benjamin Greene, and on August 10th, we will be racing the Fitz-Barn 2018, a 450-mile self-supported cycling race on gravel roads. We would like to dedicate our ride to the non-profit organization Phoenix Bikes. Cycling has taught us perseverance, discipline, and self-sufficiency, and allowed us the opportunity to see breathtaking parts of the country we otherwise would have never seen. We understand, however, that many people are not as fortunate as we are and have limited access to cycling, whether due to financial or cultural obstacles, or lack of exposure. Phoenix Bikes helps provide equal access to bicycling as a means of transportation and recreation, and teaches the youth in the community invaluable life lessons through programs like Earn-A-Bike, which teaches 12-17-year-olds how to fix and build their own bicycles.
You may make a donation in advance or pledge an amount based on whether we can finish before our goal of 4 days. To pledge an amount, please go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HFTSCY8.
All proceeds will go directly to Phoenix Bikes.
