Ride 4 a Reason – Register to Ride to Sacramento!


Don’t just spin your wheels – Ride to Sacramento!

Make a difference in our community: connect with other Oakland families to pedal for education.  Ride for a Reason is an annual bike ride from Oakland to Sacramento to draw attention to the ongoing K-12 education funding crisis, and also to raise funds for Oakland school enrichment programs. Last year, 260 riders pedaled to Sacramento and raised $106,000 which was shared by six local Oakland public schools. Join us for the 9th annual Ride for a Reason on Saturday, April 29, 2017  


We have 85 registered riders so far and we’d love to have you with us. 

This year, we have three rides to choose from: 45, 68, and 110 miles. We provide all the support you will need to go the distance on April 29th, including training rides and coaching. We encourage all riders to raise $250 or more in pledges, but the only real requirement is to ride. To get more detailed information or to register, check out r4rschools.com

Training rides are set to start this month — as soon as the rain stops!
