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
