The Connie Cycling Foundation (CCF) is honored to be an official charity partner of the Long Beach Marathon Bike Tour for the first time in 2013.  This relationship has allowed us to create a new fundraising platform we call RIDE & RAI$E.  Funds raised through this campaign will help fund 2014 youth cycling programs. Our goal is up to 100 riders... join the ride!

"CCF programs are teaching young people skills and confidence that help them not just in cycling but in life itself," says founder and Olympian Connie Paraskevin.
