TLC for Bikes is sponsoring this years fall 2015 Activis CF Cycle for Hope Bike Rally being held Saturday Sept. 26th at Lafayette Village. Registration starts at 7:00 am and the ride begins at 8:00am. There will be a 30-mile route and 65-mile route. There is a special significance to the number 65, as children who cannot pronounce Cystic Fibrosis refer to it as “65 Roses.
Every year, dozens of young people age out of foster care in Wake County at the age of 18 without the resources and support they need to successfully transition to an independent, healthy adulthood. Young people aging out of foster care experience an extremely abrupt transition to adulthood compared to most of their peers. Virtually overnight, these young people go from being in the care of the county to being on their own and expected to provide for themselves. They often lack the skills, knowledge and support network they need to be truly independent. As a result, almost 40% of young people with a history in foster care become homeless before their 21st birthday.
On Saturday, October 17th, 2015, you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these young people. Now in its fifth year, Cycle for Hope is a fundraising bicycle ride that raises awareness and funds for young people aging out of foster care. All proceeds from this event benefit The Hope Center at Pullen, a non-profit dedicated to connecting young people aging out of foster care with the resources and support they need to make a successful transition to adulthood.
Today was my first race at the Ace Speedway located in Burlington, N.C.
The track is .4 of a mile in length making for some really fast racing.
There were a lot of experience riders in the Cat 4/5 group. I love TLC Bikes for your supporting friendship and all the helpful advice and mechanical support you provide.
Can’t wait to represent TLC Bikes at the High Point Criterium Racing later this year.
