Are you ready for Bike for Kam 2013?
Last year we raised over $32,000 strictly through online avenues like facebook and this year our goal is to increase our fundraising and ridership.
This year we are taking a break from our epic cross country tour and bringing Bike for Kam to the local SoCal community. We will be doing an organized costal ride from LOS ANGELES to SAN DIEGO (135 miles) the weekend of June 1-2, 2013. B4K decided to do a weekend ride this year because we wanted to involve as many bike riders as possible in order to increase awareness, fundraising and fun!
If you would like to bike ride from LA to San Diego please, register via our facebook event page so we have an idea of the number of people interested. New B4K 2013 promo video and materials will be here soon, so hang tight. For now, start training and ask your friends to join the ride, too!
What to expect?
If you have followed us the last couple years you know our rides are not like other traditional organized rides. We are still a grassroots project with absolutely zero funding, this way 100% of the proceeds goes directly to HIBM medical research. B4K riders receive the satisfaction of a challenging ride which means there is no babysitting, no swag vans following you to carry your gear and no organized water stops along the route. It’s just you and the open road. Use your wit, your problem solving skills, adaptability, endurance and your love for biking and doing good to push you through. You don’t have to be a master cyclist to join our rides but some experience is encouraged, but most of all a strong mindset is needed. Many of our past riders have said they use the image of an HIBM patient like Kam who struggles with the simplest of tasks; like taking a step or going to the bathroom to invigorate their sense of confidence.
If you can’t ride but would like to help with the planning, please contact Kam @ email@example.com
