Save the Twins

On the first of October the Mountain Shadow Riders held our 11th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Ride "Save the Twins". It was a huge success, so much so that we were able to break our previous year record of $14K. This year we raised a total of $22,500... not too bad for a bunch of women who ride motorcycles! 100% of the amount raised will be donated to our local affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

We couldn't ask for better weather, upper 80's and I'm so glad the weather held out because the following weekend we had our first snowfall. We had over 600 participants and one of those participants was Cris Baldwin, the President of Women on Wheels, Cris and her husband rode their motorcycle from Missouri just to be with us for our big event.

Thanks to the MSR gals and guys for making this year’s ride a huge success and a huge thank you to all our sponsors and to those that came out to support us, we couldn't have done it without you... Colorado bikers are the BEST.

We made the evening news, a really short segment... you can watch it here on KRDO. If you would like to see more pictures from the ride, you can find them in my MSR BCA Ride-October 2011 Flickr album.

Thanks for visiting ~ Jovi

    Regardless of the name, it's a worthy cause and your "bunch of women who ride motorcycles" did an awesome job raising $22,500.
