I got an email promoting a cycling event in Marin California.
Friday Sept 29, 2006 (all info is contained in the link below – just click on the next line)
Eddy Merckx ride for The Oak Hill School
The infamous Eddy Merckx is joining ZteaM cycling for a 50 mile ride to benefit the Oak Hill school located in Marin California. Riders should arrive at the Oak Hill School no later than 11:30 AM at 441 Drake Blvd, Marin City, CA 94965. The police escorted ride will travel through Marin, out to Nicasio Valley and back down the senic coast highway 1 and finish at the school. Come chat/ride with Eddy and have complimentary sodas and snacks after the ride. Diretions: Get off 101 at the Marin City/Sausalito exit where Mike’s Bike is. Go west one block and make a left on Drake.
I won’t be there but if you are an Eddy Merckx fan and you live in the area this might be a fun event for you. It costs $100 and benefits The Oak Hill School:
The Oak Hill School is a specialized school in Marin City for children with autism and other neurologically based development issues. Children on the autism spectrum typically have difficulty communicating, which severely limits their ability to communicate, form relationships, access the world and live independently around them. As many as 1 in 166 children born today are autistic, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
A worthy cause by any standard.
