Join us for Dialed Cycling Team's 7th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater charity ride! Wear your UGLIEST Christmas Sweater for this "rain or shine" ride. A prize will be given to the best ugly sweater, best decorated bike, and best overall ensemble, so have fun with it!
Pace: The ride will be slow (roughly 12-14 mph), social paced, no drops, and we will stop for mechanicals.
We will have a mid-ride pitstop at Compass Coffee in Downtown Vancouver.
THE CHARITY - One of the great reasons why we do this ride:
BIKES for KIDS!
The Dialed Cycling Team believes ALL kids deserve a bike! Additionally, we want more kids on bikes, so we are achieving two goals simultaneously. We will kick things off with our UGLY Christmas Sweater Ride, and continue to raise money through the holiday season and into the New Year. ALL proceeds will go to purchasing new bikes for less fortunate kids who would likely never own a new bike. Additionally, we will assemble the bikes, personally deliver the bikes, and provide a workshop on cycling safety in conjunction with the Vancouver Police Department's PAL's program. Each child will receive a new Cannondale or BMC bicycle, Giro helmet, and a bike lock to help ensure their bike stays safe!
Watch Matt LeGrand's video (below) to learn more about our charity and meet some of the kids who we have been able to help in the past. Our goal is to purchase 20+ bikes, helmets, and locks this year... Can you help?
