The Silicon Valley Brain Tumor Ride is a family-friendly bike ride and community day benefiting the National Brain Tumor Society!
Every day in the U.S. over 575 people are diagnosed with one of the 120 different types of brain tumors. Second only to Leukemia, Brain Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children and yet research continues to remain underfunded.
You can register to ride 10-, 25-, or 50-miles through greater Silicon Valley. They are also in need of essential day of event volunteers, especially those familiar with bike events and repair. A full listing of volunteer opportunities is available on the website, the most critical one that needs to be filled is four vehicles and drivers that are familiar with bike events. See full description below.
Road Crew – Four Vehicles and Drivers Needed!
5:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The support vehicles are vital to the safety and success of our ride. Road Crew members provide support for the riders along the routes. Drivers must have a valid Drivers License and be over 18 years old. Drivers need to be helpful, patient, able to follow maps, and comfortable stopping safely along the roadside. Drivers may transport riders and their bicycle to a rest stop. Ability to change bike flat tires is a bonus. Drivers may have a ham radio operator riding along with them, and will also need to be able to carry an additional passenger. Drivers will use their own vehicles, which could be a van, pick-up, SUV or car with a bike rack.
Funds raised through this event help to direct promising research, support families who are currently coping with the effects of a brain tumor diagnosis, and advocate for change. Join the movement to bring the issue of brain tumors to the forefront while cycling through the Silicon Valley.
