Speedvagen, Leave It On Te Road, and Rapha have teamed up to do a 50K ride the morning of the photo show and fundraiser.
When: Saturday 9/3 @ 9am
Cost: FREE but you need to RSVP.
Epic rides, with purpose.
Leave It On The Road was founded by Michael Tabtabai after losing his father to cancer. The founding cross-country ride took him and friend Andrew Hudon across the US in 24 days, averaging 150 miles per day. The ride brought together some of the best cycling brands to help support the journey and raise awareness and funds towards the fight against cancer. Since then LIOTR has continued with more epic rides and stories, and each one is photographed and shared in real time on their Instagram account and website.
Leave It On The Road – Mixtape Ride
What is the bike ride equivalent of a mixtape? Some of you may be old enough to remember the hours put into crafting a cassette with two perfect sides. Do you start with a banger or do you ease on in and blow it out later? Is the mix full of hits or are you digging for those unknown gems that simply must be shared? How do you transition from Side A to Side B? The countless decisions and directions and planning and curating and recording and erasing and recording again. The consequences you face if you make a wrong decision. The pride you feel when you've fucking nailed it and you have a perfect mixtape that you listen to again and again and again. And of course, the whole time you have a person in your mind that the mixtape is dedicated to. Swap music for roads and you can see where we are going with this. One more adventure to fight cancer begins next Saturday 8/27. You're going to want to listen in to this one.
