2015 California Coast Classic Bicycle Tour
The California Coast Classic Bike Tour is a scenic bike ride that takes place over 8 days and covers 525 miles along the coast on Highway 1. The Tour starts in the heart of San Francisco and ends on the iconic strand of Los Angeles. The "CCC", as it is affectionately known, is a full-service ride which provides the framework for one of the most incredible experiences of a lifetime. We welcome beginners to experienced cyclists to enjoy the coastline's famous wineries, lighthouses and beaches.
The picture above was from the last time Karen was on a bike. After that ride her back issues got much worse and on December 19th, she had back surgery due to her arthritis. Days later, we were asked to Join Team “Grey Hares” for the Arthritis Foundation’s 15th Annual California Coast Classic Bicycle Tour. This charitable bike tour will be raising funds to support arthritis research and community-based education programs. We felt it was a great cause. We also felt that it would be good motivation that might help with her recovery. So we said yes. Please help us meet our minimum goal of $6,200, any donation you're able to make would we greatly appreciated and will go to a great cause.
