2022 - A Year in Review

January 2022
A New Year and A Renewed Anticipation for the 2022 Riding Season !

The timing couldn't have been better for the WR4 Zoom Ride Party announcement on1/24/22 for the member-only July 3-day ride event. After almost a month of a steady diet of Zwift, the membership needed something to look forward to--- So, they were all over getting on the zoom call to learn about the July event. John Genell, WR4's Chief Ambassador, laid out the 3-day ride, from South Fork to Iola on the Blue Mesa Reservoir and back to South Fork with the route winding its way through four of Colorado's most scenic and least populated counties and views of some of the tallest peaks in the state. WR4's Executive Director, Sharon Madison, introduced the members to Zach Ostrander of Summit Cycle Solutions and Bill Plock of 303 Endurance, who plan the yearly event with John and Sharon. Sharon also introduced Jon Pasquini, Executive Director for Lucky to Ride, our new non-profit we will be riding 4 this coming year. Dave Edwards from Primal was introduced as well. The presentation was such a hit that the trip sold out with a waiting list before the night was over. Yes, there will be 50 WR4 members heading to South Fork, where the 3-day loop will begin! Nobody seemed frightened away by the climb up Slumgullion Pass (11,530 feet) heading into Lake City on Day 1. Instead, the members on the waiting list hope they may get a chance to join the lucky 50 who will be sporting the pink and blue.

We Ride 4 Joins the Primal Audi Team for the Bike MS Colorado 2022 Event!

Bike MS Colorado will be hosting its yearly fundraising bike event on June 25-26, 2022. Teams have already started to come together to begin their fundraising efforts for this great cause—- to live in a world free of MS! The Colorado Primal-Audi team has been one of the top 5 fundraising teams for this annual event. Because of the enthusiasm the WR4 members have brought to their teams in past years, they invited WR4 to officially join them this year with the team's new name being PRIMAL - Audi Denver - We Ride 4 for the 2022 event and beyond. Several WR4 members are on the roster and are busy fundraising to meet the team's goal of $75,000! There is no fee to join this team. Instead, each participant commits to raising $400 minimum, and Primal will give each registrant a complimentary team jersey to wear. 

 The PRIMAL - Audi Denver - We Ride 4 team each year welcomes all level riders who want to join in the fun of being on an awesome team. That's right, no one has to join the We Ride 4 club to partake in the fun leading up to the ride and the ride itself. Instead, everyone is welcome to join in on the training rides and share in the weekend's camaraderie with your 50+ teammates.
