Social Gathering Before/After

Come join me on a great gravel event on Saturday, June 10th.  I will be riding the Half 79er (about 45 miles) and plan to be at the park around 8:30am and will roll out at 9am.  If you want to get TCBC mileage credit, please register on the TCBC ride calendar and if you don't see me at the ride, text or email me to let me know which route you rode.  Below are details for the ride and a link to register/pay for the event:

Welcome to the Second annual Kasners Kick Duchenne (KKD) gravel bike ride! This is a gravel ride to support the fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The Kasner family have two young boys diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This ride is intended to raise awareness and money for research to fight this terrible disease for the Kasner boys and others who battle Duchenne, a rare genetic and eventually fatal disease.

There are four distances for this gravel bike ride, based around the number 79, which is a number that is significant in the Duchenne community —

17.9 MILE STROLL (17.88 miles w/ 454 ft of elevation)

HALF 79ER (44.3 miles w/ 1385 ft of elevation)

79 MILE CHALLENGE (80.46 miles w/ 3410 ft of elevation)

158 ULTRA ENDURANCE (161.99 miles w/ 5210 ft of elevation )

All distance rides start and stop at the Rambling River Park which is thirty minutes south of the Twin Cities. Staggered start times from 6am through 11am. Routes will explore the gravel roads of Dakota, Rice, Le Sueur and Scott Counties, depending on your chosen distance. The gravel roads for these routes are unique in their familiarity, as they’re the gravel that everyone grew up with, and you’ll love riding them.

There will be live music, a food truck, drinks, giveaways, a raffle and other good stuff. To ride in the event, a donation is requested.

All proceeds from this event, including your registration, go directly to the Flanigan Lab at Nationwide Children's Hospital, which is an organization that Kasners Kick Duchenne have partnered with for this event. The Flanigan Lab at Nationwide Children's will use your donated money on the Duchenne frontline researching for a cure. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
