Ride reviews from past years:
:: Camaraderie is HUGE. Personal challenge is a driving, but daunting, force. I guarantee participating in The Britton Fund Ride will be a personal uplifting, invigorating experience for YOU!!
:: It was incredibly fun! Great group of people, very easy going, good food, we raised so much money - very successful and rewarding experience.
:: Lots of great people I would probably not have had a chance to get to know otherwise. Beautiful setting. Wonderful support from SAG. The choice of length of ride was really important to many people I spoke to.
:: You're riding for a great cause and it was inspiring to me all the donations I received from residents who wanted to support tree research.
