Cycle the Sierra, an annual cycling event that takes place in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Northern California, has selected SYRCL as a beneficiary of their ride taking place this June. This fully supported, five-day journey takes riders on a 300-mile loop through breathtaking country, beneath granite peaks, through evergreen forests and to alpine hot springs. Cycle the Sierra is a member of 1% for the Planet and has selected five non profit organizations to support–one for each day of the ride. SYRCL is proud to have been selected and will be the highlighted non profit for the Sierraville to Nevada City leg of the journey.
Each day cyclists will travel roughly 60 miles. At night, they’ll camp together under the stars. Camps will feature delicious food, live music, a beer and wine garden, massage therapists, bike mechanics and other cyclists letting loose on vacation from all over the United States. Registration for the ride opens February 25, 2012–sign up today and support SYRCL while you recreate.
