The Red Nose Riders
With the support of Walgreens, and in partnership with Red Nose Day USA that works to end childhood poverty, we helped organize two four-day fundraising bike rides called Ride On 4 Red Nose Day. The Ride On events began in 2012, when cyclocross national champion Tim Johnson organized a ride from Boston to Washington D.C. to increase awareness for bike safety and raise money for PeopleForBikes. This year’s events included rides that began on both coasts, as riders pedaled from Santa Barbara to Las Vegas, or Boston to New York City. NASCAR drivers Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth joined us, as did former NHL star Andrew Ferrence. We raised more than $250,000 for Red Nose USA.
