This is the 2nd year that ROMAN Cycling is participating in Bike the Blizzard to support Back Alley Bikes and its youth programs. Last year we had 4 members ride ~100 miles and raise $1080. Our goal this year is to get at least 6 riders to participate and to ride >200 miles and raise >$1500. Please consider sponsoring our ride and more importantly Back Alley Bikes and the youth they serve and support in Detroit. More about the event below...
From Back Alley Bikes: This year will be the 4th annual Back Alley bike-a-thon event, Bike the Blizzard: Arctic Road. This year we're hoping to raise 15k (not far from the high water mark we hit last year, ending at 14k total). Half that money will be used to sponsor youth going to the Youth Bike Summit in Minneapolis in May of 2016, as it has been traditionally used, and the rest will go into our general operating fund, to pay for things like locks & helmets, water bottles and snacks for kids during our programming.
This event, as in years past, is a 24-hour ride-your-legs off endeavor. Riders will raise as much as they can and ride as much as they can.
