Climb With A Cause: Full Recap!


You have seen the sprinkles of hints and previews into my yearly Climb With A Cause event from various social media; and as incredible of an experience as it was it’s something I truly wish could be shared by many more cyclist and friends’ of cyclist over the years to come.

I began my trek up Highway 38 to end in Big Bear Lake. Parking at the Mill Creek Ranger Station located at the base of the mountain and riding the 40 – ish miles to Onyx Summit and then cruising down into the city.

I couldn’t have asked for a more encouraging group of guys to join me on the ride and to tag along in the support vehicles, because at the end of the day, and after all the questions regarding logistics, ratios used, training required, weather, etc. what it really amounted to was the old clichรฉs: Mind Over Matter and Slow and Steady.

What I love most about hosting this event is the joy it brings to other cyclist who put their passion to work for the aid of others. And, the inspiration it brings to everyone else in proving you can do some good with the craft that defines you, and a little bit of hard work! ๐Ÿ™‚
