Jason Bausch is a Southern California cyclist who has been a very competitive racer for a number of years and recently lost a kidney to cancer. A riding colleague of mine at Velo-605 alerted me to a charity ride for Jason’s benefit this November 25 (the day after Thanksgiving), leaving Surf City Cyclery in Costa Mesa at 9am.
The ride will follow Pacific Coast Highway through Newport Beach, Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach before turning around at Dana Point and returning northward. On the northbound leg, to make sure you burn off ALL of your Thanksgiving calories, the ride will take in a significant climb east of Laguna Beach and descend Park Avenue.
Pre-register here to make a donation toward Jason’s medical bills, and to sign up to ride for a good cause.
