Hello North Baltimore Bike Brigade!

I found your contact information online and wanted to invite you and your members to join celebrity Tour de France veterans Floyd Landis and Bob Roll for the 3rd Annual Save-A-Limb Ride on Sunday, September 28th at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville, MD. Is it possible for you to share this information with your listserve members and place it on your blog?

The Save-A-Limb Ride will feature three different ride through Maryland’s Countryside: a Metric Century ride, 30 miler, and 6 mile family fun ride. Proceeds from the event will go to the Save-A-Limb Fund, a nonprofit established with the goal of advancing patient care and support in the fight to save limbs from amputation and to preserve joints. Following the Save-A-Limb Ride there will be a picnic and carnival, featuring Bob Roll as MC.

We’re also looking for volunteers to assist with water stops, carnival games and registration for the event. Make a difference today! Register for the Save-A-Limb Bike Ride and Carnival and raise money for the Save-A-Limb Fund where every pedal and dollar will change the life of someone struggling with a limb and joint deformity.

Please feel free to share this information with anyone you think may be interested. We also have opportunities for your organization to set up a table an recruit new members for your team. I look forward to speaking with you further about the event and answering any of your questions. We hope to see you and your team out on the course! Thank you in advance for your time and attention.

Take care,
Anna ML Valero

I won’t be able to make it, and I know that Zack will be where I will be Sunday.  But if anyone else can swing it, it sounds like fun.  And I’d love to see photos!
