Remote Ride X CCC Challenge, presented by Amgen

Please join us in opting in for the RR X CCC Challenge, presented by Amgen this year! 

What is RR X CCC? In order to open up the CCC experience to all who want to be involved, we launched the REMOTE RIDE X CCC CHALLENGE presented by Amgen (RR X CCC ) so everyone can participate in CCC 20 on their terms. As the CCC Leadership Committee announced on July 28, 2020, we are simply unable to obtain the permits needed to conduct the 2020 California Coast Classic (CCC) Bike Tour as an in-person Tour, so the 2020 CCC will be run as an all-remote ride.

How does it work? The RR X CCC Challenge will run from October 3 to November 1, 2020. During these 30 days you are encouraged to log miles where you can and share your efforts! You’ll earn swag and prizes while supporting the Arthritis Foundation’s mission to help 1 in 4 adults and 300,000 kids live their best lives.

The RR x CCC Challenge Experience:
  • The Remote Ride Challenge will run from October 3 to November 1, during these 30 days you are encouraged to log miles when you can and share where you ride via Strava and Challenge Hound.
  • Enjoy the spirit of comradery with the CCC Family, meet new friends and reconnect at our CCCBYOB Social Hours, virtual start + finish line, and prize drawings. Keep an eye on our CCC Facebook and Instagram channels to see what others are up to all month long and don’t forget to use the #RRXCCC when sharing your photos/videos.
  • Fundraise to earn swag + prizes while supporting the Arthritis Foundation’s mission. All month long we’ll share inspiring #WhyWeRide stories to keep you pedaling while helping 54 million adults and 300,000 children with arthritis live their best lives!
  • Don’t forget to aim high for our RR x CCC Challenge incentives and see recognition for individuals and teammates on our leaderboards.
Now More Than Ever

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been particularly severe for nonprofits like the Arthritis Foundation. Other events have been completely cancelled. Arthritis isn’t cancelled so the mission of the Arthritis Foundation must continue. That effort can’t continue without incredible supportive volunteers like yourself. Now, more than ever, the Arthritis Foundation, and all of the patients and their families that the Foundation supports, need the fundraising each of us do as part of the CCC. So we encourage you to join us in the RR X CCC Challenge. Let’s keep riding and fundraising as a CCC Community to make a difference for the Arthritis Foundation community! Please join us in pledging support and opting in for the RR X CCC Challenge this year.

How do I join? Registration for the RR X CCC Challenge is now open and free to anyone 18 and over.
