2018-Youth Revolution Cycling Project
The Revolution Ride & Festival brings people of all abilities together for a day of cycling, celebration, and community. It is BORP’s largest event, attracting over 300 attendees annually. The Youth Revolution Cycling Project supports twenty-five young cyclists as they participate in the Revolution Ride & Festival. It is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to ride safely with friends and family on roads that wind through one of the nation’s top cycling destinations: the beautiful California wine country. Following the ride, the cycling team attends the Festival featuring live music, lawn games, a gourmet catered meal, photo booth, and an awards presentation where members of the BORP Youth Cycling Team are recognized in front of their peers, fellow riders, friends, and family for their achievement.
This one day event is designed to provide people with new and thrilling opportunities to experience three adaptive sports: climbing (on a climbing wall), cycling along the Bay Trail, and kayaking.
Outdoor Adventures Program enables individuals and their families to experience the joy, fun thrills and inspiration of the outdoor adventure from peaceful hikes in gorgeous natural settings (Muir and Yosemite National Park) to exciting adventure trips (water skiing and white water rafting)
