Please join us for the second annual Velo & Vines Ride in Healdsburg, California, benefitting the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation. The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization that provides medical grants to help children gain access to health-related services not covered, or not fully covered, by their family’s commercial health insurance plan.
Healdsburg is nestled in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country with well over 100 wineries within a 30 mile radius. Join other UHCCF supporters from all over the country and ride a signature route through a cycling mecca. Whether you choose the 100MI or 100K route, you’ll have the opportunity to ride along the vineyards, over the Russian River, and through Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley. And, new this year, we are introducing a 30MI option as well. All routes lead back to an exclusive post-ride celebration featuring wonderful wine, amazing food and great music.
It will be an incredible event you won't want to miss! Proceeds from the event will help fund medical grants for children in the West Region!
