SKLZ is proud to support the Challenged Athletes Foundation and their Million Dollar Challenge bike ride to raise funds for athletes with physical disadvantages. This year SKLZ has two riders that will be participating in the ride, CEO John Sarkisian and VP of Sales Mike Carlson. Today began in Pismo Beach and ended in Santa Barbara.
John, Mike and the rest of the Million Dollar Challenge riders have made it through their longest day of the journey. They topped yesterday's 114 mile ride by logging 119 miles today.
The mist this morning proved to be a bit of a challenge for riders. John faced several flats early on, but with his speed, he was still able to catch up to the groups who were leading the pack. Today also marked the longest ride Mike has ever done in a single day.
Riders were able to see everything from the beaches of the central coast to the Santa Barbara wine region. It was a great day for everyone.
Not only does the SKLZ Dodge Sprinter look great on the road but it has been extremely helpful in transporting CAF bikes. Today we were able to fit four handcycles and one tandem bike inside!
