May 4, 2014 TAM FONDO
The Bear Development Team was created to help talented young athletes grow and develop within the context of bicycle racing. From the beginning, we’ve endeavored to do something different with this program. We have explored various financial models, learning how to best sustain this team and help these kids best develop as bike racers and people. We are fortunate enough to have enjoyed the strong grass roots support of so many generous members of the Nor Cal cycling community thus far. We invite you to join this community of Bear Team supporters by participating in the Bear Tam Fondo.
By riding the Bear Tam Fondo, each of you, in a sense, becomes a team sponsor. If you want to see homegrown Nor Cal riders animating the Tour of California or representing the USA in the Olympic XC race in years to come, this is a great opportunity to invest in these possibilities. Your investment will enable a group of talented, dynamic, committed, bright, resourceful kids to have an amazing experience this season. Their experiences with Bear will help them become tomorrow’s pro cyclists, entrepreneurs and community leaders.
In exchange for your generosity as a sponsor of this program, we offer you a day of:
- 73 miles of Marin’s most beautiful road riding around Mountain Tamalpais
- Gourmet coffee, real food aid stations, authentic taco lunch, craft beers
- CHP motorcycle escorts and follow car support
- A chance to ride with Bear Development Team & our World Tour Pro Cyclist friends
The Bear Tam Fondo is May 4, 2014, just one week prior to the Tour of California. Ted King, Tayler Wiles, Olivia Dillon and Ben Jacques-Maynes rode the last Bear Tam Fondo in 2013. We’ve lined up even more great pros and personalities to attend this year’s event. Our goal is to create an unforgettable day for you, ourteam sponsors.
