Well, as usual I am doing another fundraiser this year. This year I am putting on a mountain bike festival up near Lake Fontana. It will take place on July 21st-23rd and all proceeds will benefit The Mountain Community School Bicycle Club.
For those of you that are not familiar with the club, these are a bunch of kids getting the best of motivation from their Principal, Chad Hamby, and from a group of wonderful volunteers. These volunteers take the kids out mountain biking where they learn how to traverse obstacles, how to treat the trails and environment with respect, and how to safely ride their bikes. In order to participate, the students must maintain good grades and must not have any recent disciplinary actions. As a result, grades are up and the kids are behaving. It is truly a fantastic program!
Our fundraiser will be called Fontana Fest and will include a wide variety of events such as group rides to Tsali and Fontana trails, mountain bike games and contests, live music, camping and a cookout. There will be prizes from Hayes Disc Brake, Maxxis Tires, Sycamore Cycles, Schampa, and others.
