:: RuleS & SAFETY ::

ALL riders (including those registered online) must check in at registration booth, turn in their pledges and get a number. 

1) Helmets are required for all riders.

2) Release form must be signed by parents at check-in. (For those who registered online, a pre-printed release form will be waiting for your signature at check-in.) 

| Release Form |

3) Bikes, trikes, and big wheels are welcome. (NO scooters, skateboards, strollers, wagons).

4) Your child's safety is our number one priority.  We will have adult riders riding along with your children throughout the course to monitor safety. 

We discourage parents from walking along side with their children, as we think it will present a safety hazard for other riders behind them.  If your child needs to be pushed, it would be best and safest for you and your child to be at the back of the group.

:: Directions ::

South from San Francisco (or north from San Jose) on Hwy 101 take the Broadway/Burlingame exit; head west, at the third light turn left onto California Ave.  

Registration is in front of Stacks Restaurant (361 California, corner of California Ave & Lorton Ave).

Our Cause

Our Message as Ryan's parents

A message from Ryan & Matthew's parents, John and Michele.

Ryan's Ride is named in memory of Ryan Phua, one of our twins son, born after after John's successful recovery from cancer. Ryan was a healthy charming little boy who made our home sparkle with excitement.  At the age of 2 1/2, Ryan passed away from Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) on July 8, 2003.  Our family misses our little boy in our lives every day, and we now focus our energy on planning Ryan's Ride to celebrate his life and feel his presence more than his absence.        

We established the Ryan Phua Memorial Fund (Ryan's Fund) through the LIVESTRONG Foundation to support cancer survivorship programs. We hope that you can join our family at Ryan's Ride to honor Ryan's precious short life and create unforgettable memories with your own families.

About

All donations are fully tax-deductible.
