Biking For a Better World & Disabled Sports

Follow us on Twitter! @agentspayforwrd
As many of you know, I volunteer at Disabled Sports Far West where I help teach people with disabilities how to ski and snowboard in Lake Tahoe: it's the best thing I have ever done as it has transformed my life. However, I'm also a cyclist. I received a note from Vanessa at Disabled Sports letting me know about a fundraiser involving cycling that helps support Disabled Sports - a perfect marriage. The group involed in the cycling aspect is Biking For a Better World.
These people are going to ride 2,500 miles to help support Disabled Sports Far West, and it's cycling program (I rode 30 miles and was crying like a little redacted so as not to offend!). Click on the link to learn more about their ride in support of Disabled Sports. However, in the mean time, they are kicking off their affiliation with a fundraiser at Squaw Valley with a bike swap in the Squaw Valley village: see the information below and please come on out and support two great groups!

Please consider supporting Disabled Sports USA Far West by checking out Biking for a Better World's First Annual Tahoe Bike Swap on Saturday, May 23rd from 11am-5pm at the Squaw Valley Village.

Who is Biking for a Better World? A local, non profit organization that sees riding a bicycle as an empowering, enjoyable activity, understood universally and utilized throughout the entire world. Biking for a Better World strives to constantly transform the very act of pedaling into a force to make the world a better place.

How is Biking for a Better World supporting Disabled Sports USA Far West? In September 2009, Jake Spero, President, and Duncan Sisson, CFO, will ride the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route from the Canada border in Montana to the Mexico border in New Mexico. The route is 2500 miles long and the self supported riders plan to finish the route in 4 weeks. Fundraising efforts associated with this ride benefits Disabled Sports USA Far West and our summer biking programs.

Support two great organizations at once by stopping by the Bike Swap on May 23rd.
