With less than 24 hours to go, the SAIS Cycling for Access team is gearing up in San Francisco. Tamas, John, Sarahann, Josh, and Chloe have already arrived in California, and Lidia will be joining us tonight.
The past few days have been filled with excitement as we gather last-minute gear and prep outreach materials. A huge shout-out goes to Phoenix Bikes in Arlington, VA for donating precious gear for our riders. Phoenix is a community-oriented shop that teaches youth to fix bicycles and serve the greater Washington, DC area. Another thank you to REI for giving us coupons for REI-branded gear in support of our ride.
Tomorrow we are leaving San Francisco at 7:30 in the morning. Our first night will be spent in Davis, CA, and from there we will be heading over the mountains to Nevada. Stay tuned for more news.
