“What started out for me as an event challenge from family turned into an annual tradition with those who have become my favorite people! I ride to support and improve the lives of the 300,000 kids who suffer from forms of arthritis."
First Year CCC Rider and Arthritis Foundation SVP, Scientific Strategy
What a journey this has been - participating in the 2022 California Coast Classic Bike Tour was more challenging and rewarding than I ever imagined possible. It changed me in more ways than one. I made lifelong friends and will carry their stories in my heart. It motivated me to work harder than ever to continue making a difference. I am proud, I am grateful, and my heart is full with joy! Thanks to everyone who makes this event possible!

“Once my daughter was diagnosed with JIA, I knew I had to do something so I jumped right in. My experience was incredible! From the fellow riders who took me under their wings, the staff, beautiful California scenery and ride support crew, everything was amazing! Staff and riders really took the time to get to know you and your story. Each rider has a different connection to arthritis and as part of this ride, we were riding with a purpose. The connection to this important cause made the journey down the coast much more meaningful.”

“We enjoyed the ride, the hospitality and the camaraderie so much. We signed up in 2018 as a personal challenge, but after listening to the honorees and talking to others on the ride, we are convinced that we are in it for a much bigger purpose.”
