Ride for the Challenged Athletes Foundation

Whether you’re looking for a Saturday cycling option, an excuse to spend a morning outside or inspiration from some awesome athletes, I have some exciting news to share. Vision Quest Coaching and Trek of Highland Park are hosting an amazing event to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) on Saturday, August 28. It’s a great opportunity to get outside for some quality riding along the North Shore (and vicinity) and meet some of the athletes supported by CAF.

The ride departs at 8 a.m. from the Trek store at 1925 Skokie Highway in Highland Park. We’ll get things started around 7:30 a.m. with introductions and pre-ride refreshments. Then you’ll depart for a 25- or 50-mile ride–all complimentary in support of CAF.
