Sierra Leone Bike Ride

6th Annual Sierra Leone Benefit Bike Ride!

Saturday, October 12th, 2013 ~ 8:30 AM (Depart at 9:00 AM)
Skyline Community Church, 12540 Skyline Blvd, Oakland, CA

Last year, our fundraiser funded several school teachers and a college student for the entire year!
100% of your donation will go towards their education and supplies.

There will be different ride options for varying levels:
The shorter ride starts in Castro Valley (people will carpool from church) and goes out Cull Canyon Rd and back. This road is suitable for a family ride with kids as it is fairly gentle uphill on the way out with very little traffic.  We hope to have a water/snack stop at Rancho de los Amigos on Cull Canyon Rd.  1st time and less experienced riders are encouraged to join in for that leg of the ride. Cull Canyon Rd is an easy slight grade uphill country road that goes out 5 miles and back is downhill all the way.

The longer ride goes to the end of Cull Canyon Rd, in total a 45 mile ride, which can be cut short at the Golf Course on Redwood Rd (26 miles) or Bort Meadow (18 miles).  Please forward to your pals to come along for the fun!

Chili & Fritatta served after the ride at the church!

Suggested $10 donation for the ride.  You can also sponsor a child in furthering their education to go to college *covering housing, tuition, books, and food for a year) for $1,000!  Note on check in the memo section: “Sierra Leone” or “Sierra Leone College Fund.”
