Why I'm Riding

“Best bicycling tour of central and southern California! Great adventure and fun way to support our California Bicycling Coalition!”

When I set out to ride in the California Dream ride in 2016, it was my first-ever long distance bike tour. I was excited and nervous all at the same time. I figured this ride would be an once-in-a-lifetime experience that I could check off my bucket list. Well I am here to tell you that I was so impressed with the staff supporting and guiding our tour, the adventure, the camaraderie, the breath-taking scenery of our beautiful Golden State experienced by bike, (gosh, I could go on and on) that I am now ready to take on the 2018 Challenge and look forward to another opportunity to support the California Bicycling Coalition. Their mission-“To make California a better place to ride a bike and to get more people riding” resonates with me. I am passionate about ensuring we have safe, comfortable and connected bike-way networks available for all bicyclists.

What makes this year's ride so special to me is that my step-daughter (who is also the god-mother of my daughter), will be participating in this ride.  I am over-the-moon with happiness and joy that she has registered for this year's ride and that we will be doing this ride together.  I look forward to an amazing time that we will share on this bicycling tour.

We are also witnessing the increased acceptance of using electric bicycles (e-bikes) as a means to get folks out there riding, for those who might not otherwise ride. This year’s California Dream Ride is embracing the e-bike trend by offering this option to potential riders to help overcome the fear and barrier of participating. I can testify first-hand to this, as an e-bike owner myself. My participation in the 2016 ride would not have been possible had it not been for my e-bike. I sincerely appreciate the California Dream Ride all-inclusive policy that allows using e-bikes on the tour. It is a true testimony to their embodiment of their mission statement!
