About This Activity

This annual cycling event pays tribute to Philip Svitak, who was killed March 4, 2002 in Afghanistan during a twelve-hour firefight after his elite unit's helicopter was shot down. Philip was an avid cyclist and we ride to pay tribute to Philip and all our fallen soldiers. A portion of the proceeds go to the Svitak Memorial Bike Fund to purchase bicycles for children of military families at Christmas.
