Ride for a Reason 2018

Goal $500.00


Hi friends!

Nikko and I kicked off our training on Jan 28 with a flat 25 miles along the Bay Trail, followed the next week by a 47-mile loop (which included the piggish Pig Farm Hill). We have a long way to go before our 109-mile ride to Sacramento on April 28, but we think we can do it!* 

We're raising money for eight underfunded Oakland public schools—including Nikko's high school Oakland Tech, an awesome school which AGAIN had its budget cut mid-year (the supply budget for the rest of the year = $0). Please consider supporting us.

More info:

RIDE FOR A REASON is our annual bike ride from Oakland to Sacramento to advocate for public education, and raise essential funds for school enrichment programs in Oakland. We ride to the steps of the State Capitol to advocate for greater funding for education. 

Many elective classes and enrichment programs depend entirely on community fundraising. But community fundraising alone can’t do the deep work needed to fully support all schools. That’s why we ride to Sacramento — to bring attention to underfunded schools.

The funds we raise will be split evenly between Edna Brewer Middle School, Claremont Middle, Oakland Technical High, Emerson Elementary, Westlake Middle School, Oakland International High, Roosevelt Middle School and Skyline High School.

Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated!


*If the rains kick in hard and we can't get training rides in, we may have to cut back to the 65-mile route option. Either way, 100% of your donation goes to Oakland schools (our registration fee covers the cost of supporting the event).
