Event Details

Announcing the fourth annual Cycling 4 Veterans (C4V) ride on Saturday, October 6, 2018 hosted by Veterans First Program at Las Positas College and the C4V volunteer group organizers. As a veterans and military supported event, C4V is leading the way in Northern California, and this year they are featuring three epic rides for 30 miles, 55 miles and 115 miles! Come ride where the professional cyclists ride!

We would like to personally invite you to combine your passion for cycling with a fun-filled day spent with family, friends, and your local community members at C4V!

We encourage you to participate in a recreational ride and to share this event with your friends, family and colleagues. The opportunities are endless: participate as a cyclist, volunteer the day of the event, or cheer on someone you know at the finish line!

The C4V event will be the talk of the town on October 6, now all we need is you!

The C4V event is dedicated to support military veterans and current in-service personnel. All fundraising will directly benefit veteran and active military organizations including: the Las Positas College Veterans First Program, Sentinels of Freedom, Student Veterans Organization (SVO), Blue Star Moms – Danville Chapter, and Pleasanton Military Families (PMF).

Our 2017 event disbursed nearly $48,000 for these veteran and active military personnel support organizations and our plan for 2018 is to surpass this amount! With your support and participation we can make this happen, and if you’re riding the event you’ll benefit as well!

Funds at work: The Veterans Resource Center at Las Positas College is staffed to provide educational support through resources, peer mentoring and workshops. There is also a special writing project sponsored by the college focused on improving writing skills by telling of the veterans’ personal stories. There are truly American Heroes all around us! Read OUR VETERAN STORIES HERE and see why continued funding of these support programs is so important.
