Friends for Phinney Coast to Coast
Victory Crew members Kevin Cartin, Kathleen Donohue, Tom Casey, and Rick Baker put two years of fundraising scheming to the pedal this past summer. On July 20th, 2013, this team of four riders, Davis Phinney's High school friends from Boulder, took to the road on a bike tour to raise money and awareness along the way for the Davis Phinney Foundation. The Friends for Phinney Coast to Coast started in in July in Oceanside, CA, and finished in New York City. Read why they rode, take a look at the route they followed, and more importantly, support their cause!  You can also purchase an insulated Davis Phinney Foundation Polar Bottle with $5 of the proceeds for each bottle sold benefiting the Foundation. Check out this awesome crew's funny, poignant blog and explore ways to give!
