Testimonials

This was one of the BEST organized rides that I've ever done. The rest stops were at perfect spots along the route, were filled with delicious food and kind volunteers. The route was excellent and well marked- we had a simply fantastic day and a yummy meal at the end too! I have absolutely ZERO complaints and nothing but praise for all the hard work you guys did!

Danni M.

I thought the event was great! It was the first time I've participated, in fact only my second cycling event. I did the 100K and found the course to be enjoyable and well-marked, the rest stops at appropriate intervals with great snacks, and the lunch good. I'll definitely be back next year!

Rosanne M.

The SAG support was one of the best I have experienced. Thank you...will definitely be back next year!

Lisa M.

The weather, the route, the food, the welcoming volunteers were perfect. I cannot think of anything that needs improving. This was our 5th year, and we will be back next year too.

Marlene S.

I think this is the 4th or 5th year we've ridden in the iCare Classic, and it was another great day!! We come back year after year because you guys are so incredibly friendly, the event is really well-run, and the food is delicious!
