The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is proud to announce the first annual "Triple Five Tour Ride to Recovery" bicycle road bike ride during the week of September 10-15, 2007 to benefit injured MX/SX riders of the past and present.The ride will begin at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco California and will end some 555 miles away in Carlsbad California. The ride will follow nearly the same path as the "Tour of California" bicycle race that is held yearly. The ride is a brainchild of THOR MX's very own Victor Sheldon."I have wanted to do this ride for a long time,and I finally made up my mind to just do it." said Sheldon. Since committing himself to this Sheldon has enlisted the help of friends in and out of the MX industry including Michael Sleeter,Todd Jacobs and D.L. Wood. 555 miles in five days is Tour De France like and the four riders will be riding nearly 110 miles each and every day. "I'm excited to see people being so unselfish and working so hard to try and help out our injured riders" said Jimmy Button,co-founder of R2R.R2R is accepting donation for the fallen riders that will be turned around and distributed directly to our fallen riders. You can log on to www.road2recovery.com and pledge any amount you wish for the ride.
