This was my first organized ride and I thought it was just great! I was impressed with the event organization from the start; when I registered online, picked up my package on Friday, and throughout the day on Saturday. I would not change a thing and I look forward to next year’s ride!
The Share the Road Ride began in 2010 as a tribute to Phillip Hernandez who died in a cycling accident in Simi Valley in August of 2005.
Our ride has been held continuously since our first event in 2010. Recognizing the limitations for in-person gatherings in the State of California, we will be offering our first ever VIRTUAL ride in 2020! This virtual effort will allow us to welcome riders from all of the world to our event, continue to increase awareness for the Share the Road message, and raise funds to support the programs of Soaring Spirits International, a non-profit serving widowed people as they rebuild their lives post-loss. We hope you will join us to keep the wheels rolling and the work going!
Since our first ride, we’ve developed a team of cyclists and supporters who are dedicated to providing the BEST ride in Ventura County. We offer four awesome ride courses with great rider support throughout the event at an excellent registration price. Our onsite cycling fair includes a FREE BBQ for you, and your cheering squad. We feel you all!
The most important element of the Share the Road Ride is the spreading of the message that safe road sharing between motorists, cyclists and pedestrians is good for everyone. We want all road users to return safely to their families, an opportunity Phillip Hernandez was not afforded. Join us in spreading this important message, supporting a great cause and participating in a fantastic ride. Please see sidebar for details.
