The Almaden Super Lions Club Presents:

23rd Annual I Care Classic South County

Century Bicycle Tour

May 10, 2014

We hope you enjoyed our 2014 ride this year and will join us again next year. 100% of the proceeds Almaden Super Lions Club raises from the ride are used to buy glasses for the visually imparied and needy children.

It was a great pleasure meeting and talking to many of our riders at the rest stops and at Paramit after the tour.  We hope you had as much fun participating in this event as we did preparing it. Special thanks to our volunteers for the countless number of hours behind the scene and our sponsors for the generous donations.

Let us know your feedback on this year's ride.  Please check back on this website for more information about our 24th Annual I Care Classic Centurty Bicycle Tour in 2015.

This year's ride pictures have been posted.  Please visit our Photo Gallery to see them.  If you have any pictures that you would like to add to our Gallery, please e-mail them to us.
