October 10 – Ride for Pie Day!

Cycling and Pie are perfect together! On October 10, we plan to ride as a community by logging our personal miles outside or indoors and finishing with pie! During a year with so few in-person events we want to try something new and give you a day to look forward to.

Let’s celebrate CAF’s commitment to adaptive cycling, the strength of our community, and our deep gratitude to J&L Pie Company, the generous sponsor of our Adaptive Cycling program.

Here’s how it works:
1) Get out and ride anytime, anywhere
2) If you haven’t already – make sure you’ve joined the CAF Strava Challenge to track your miles and be eligible for even more prizes
3) Finish your ride off at your favorite pie shop or at home with a piece of homemade pie
4) Share your ride on Strava and Social Media and tag #CAFCommunityChallenge and #RideforPie for a chance to win our photo contest


Don’t forget to share your progress with friends and family on your social channels! Not only will you help motivate others and spread the word about CAF and the challenge, you’ll also be entered to win fun prizes along the way!

This next week, as we head into Week 9, everyone who shares their progress by posting a photo on social media, tags us, and uses the hashtag #CAFCommunityChallenge will be entered to win a 1 lb bag of coffee from silver sponsor, Equator Coffee! The perfect pairing with pie after a nice long bike ride.

Check out our Virtual Goodie Bag to learn more about Equator Coffee and the amazing CAF Blend they have for sale right now. For every bag sold, $1 will be donated back to CAF.

Week 8 winners from this past week will be sent their special edition Power of Sport t-shirts from CAF supporter, Laura Siddell.

Plant-Based Nutrition for Athletes

How you fuel can be the difference between a new personal best and a mediocre-at-best training session. It’s the competitive advantage that takes your training to the next level.

That’s the principle that Vega was founded on and is what drove us to create the Vega Sport® Nutrition System, a series of plant-based sport nutrition products designed to help you optimize every stage of your training.

Learn more about the importance of supporting your training with the right nutrition, and how Vega Sport® can help fuel your goals on the Vega blog.
