All of you old school guys and gals know that 50 Mile Ride for Rwanda was always called “The Rwanda Ride” by nearly everyone. This year, as we looked back on where we have been and where we are going, we realized how big this event has become and all of the amazing things YOU to for others by participating.
First, we realized that the 10 and 25 mile routes are growing! And that is awesome. We want them to continue growing and one of the things we constantly hear when we are sharing with others about the event is that, most people hear 50 miles on a Mountain Bike and Check out. While the 50 mile ride will always be the heart of the event, we didn’t want to discourage people from changing the world just because our name sounded scary.
So, at this years first planning meeting, the team discussed it and decided to call the ride what the public had been calling it for a long time – The Ride for Rwanda.
