Biking For Brains Charity Ride

August 12th, 2014

Did you know that cycling is the leading cause of sports-related head injuries?  Each year, nearly 90,000 people sustain head injuries due to bike accidents. 90% of those killed were not wearing helmets.

This August, two tenacious women from Duluth, MN, will strap on their helmets and ride 1,300 miles around Lake Superior.

Their goal: to spread bike safety awareness throughout the community and raise $10K in 20 Days to support Restart services.

Your support not only helps to spread the important message of bicycling safety, it allows Restart clients the opportunity to gain back independence and live healthy, satisfying lives.
