The Ride: Tech Challenge
Benefitting: Sunshine Camps of Austin
The inaugural Ride: Tech Challenge was a 25-mile cycling relay that took place at Driveway Austin on September 1, 2013, benefitting Austin Sunshine Camps. Teams from some of Austin’s top tech companies including Google, Headspring, Bazaar Voice, and HomeAway used their Strength to Serve, helping to raise a combined $15,000 for the Austin non-profit whose mission is to create a better future and stronger community through mentoring, education and personal development of Austin’s low income youth. Tech team riders utilized a 6-week pass to PURE Austin Gym to prepare for the challenge. Sponsors Cocos Pure, Bearded Brothers, and Irie Bean Coffee fueled the riders the day of the event, while bike techs from Mellow Johnny’s made sure the Google bikes were performing optimally.
