  • Group Ride and Rider Update
    25 May 2019

    I sent an email out this morning about showing your interest in the June 22nd GREAT CYCLE CHALLENGE ROCHESTER group ride and many team riders responded by clicking they're Going or Interested. THANK YOU! There are about 20 Going/Interested. The ride is posted online in a few different areas so there will be a decent turn out including cyclists not officially signed up for the GCC.

    Also, we just reached 78 members of the Team Monkey Bars today. Just 22 more to go to hit my goal of 100 members.

    I'm heading out now to put posters up at bike shops and breweries to advertise the GCC Rochester group ride on June 22.

    Ride on!

  • 45 Riders Strong
    25 Apr 2019

    I want to thank everyone for signing on to the GCC and joining Team Monkey Bars. As of 04/25/19 we're at 45 members--a lot of new people this year too. We've exceeded the 'team' fundraising goal two times already. I'm going to increase the goal to the current amount raised. Then on June 1st, I'll move it up to the next thousand. Last year we raised over $10k for the Childrens Cancer Research fund. Not sure if we'll get that much raised this year, but any sponsor/donation amount helps the cause.

    Ride On!

  • 26 Riders
    18 Apr 2019

    I set a goal this year to build Team Monkey Bars to 100 riders. We are at 26 right now. Many are new and most of the team members from last year haven't signed on yet.

    Please try to get someone signed on. There's no pressure to fundraise and no sign up fees.

    I originally set the fund raising goal to $2000, but we're way past that already--we're close to $3k! I've got contributions stacking up that I haven't added to my page yet. I'll just keep stair-stepping the goal as we surpass them.

    Take care,

    Mario

  • Pursuing 100
    20 Mar 2019

    In 2019 I'm trying to build Team Monkey Bars to 100 members. When you sign up, get someone else signed up. Remember to tell them that sign up is free, and there's no minimum pledge or miles to ride. At the posting of this update we're at 8 members. But its early. Usually the team page isn't even up and posted yet so we're ahead of pace.

    Ride on!

    This June, Team Monkey Bars is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So we are raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.
