San Jacinto Endurance Ride & Food Drive

Self supported riding meets community action.

With so many of our friends coming from out of town next month to enjoy the riding in Idyllwild, we decided to take the opportunity to rally some off-trail awareness for a great local organization, the Idyllwild Help Center.

The Help Center provides services for more than 600 people, right here in Idyllwild. They operate a great thrift store and a food bank, in addition to providing several other great services. The food bank is low on stock right now, going into our Fall season. When I briefly talked with Colleen yesterday, it became clear right away that the cycling community can help.

We are setting a minimum goal to collect 250 food items with the SJ Enduro.
(truth be told, we’d really like to double that goal)

The Help Center appreciates any unopened, non-expired food donations. In particular, we would like to help with the following types:
– proteins (tuna, chicken, chili, etc)
– fruit
– soup

Bearing in mind the Enduro collects zero entry fee, we instead suggest a donation of the above items. Bring what you can spare to the start. One item, maybe five, it’s all appreciated.
The Hub Cyclery is setting up a food collection point and will be reaching out to the cycling community to help bolster the collection.

Together, we can help make Idyllwild an even better place to live and ride.
