The Third Annual Richard’s Ride will continue to celebrate the life and contributions of Richard Tom, a cyclist whose life was tragically ended in April of 2015. Richard dedicated his life to sharing his passion for "all things bicycle". This event will be staged at Cochran's Ski Area. There will be several road routes and two mountain bike options with rides for all ages and abilities. New for 2018 is our Title Sponsor: VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations.

All rides will finish at the Cochran Ski Area, where food and beverages will be waiting, thanks to Dakin Farms, Stone Corral Brewery and other food and beverage sponsors. Please come join the fun and support the Richard Tom Foundation. Due to somewhat limited parking at Cochran's, please carpool or consider parking in Richmond and making a short ride to Cochran's Ski Area for the event.

Through this event, the Richard Tom Foundation will continue to promote the health benefits of cycling and encourage the spirit of fun and adventure that was a significant part of Richard's life. Proceeds from Richard’s Ride support children's cycling programs and camps (including Little Bellas and Catamount's mountain biking camp), support legislative efforts led by Local Motion and other efforts to promote bike safety and adventure on bikes.

Registration for Richard’s Ride 2018 opens on March 9, 2018.
