Tour de Pink West Coast WEST COAST RIDE
 
October 27-29, 2017

Welcome to Rachel Kelley's Page

Rachel Kelley 

This year my husband, Christopher, and I are delighted to be participating in YSC Tour de Pink West Coast by riding our tandem bicycle 200 miles over the course of 3 days along the California Coast in support of young women with breast cancer. This will mark the 5th year taking part in this amazing event for both of us.

We both know what an exciting and challenging commitment this is. We are certain that with your help, encouragement and support we can reach our goal to ride the entire 200 miles and also meet our fundraising goals.

Your tax deductible donation will go to support Young Survival Coalition to help ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. The impact of cancer doesn’t end just because treatment does, survivors will need to address the long-term and possible life limiting effects of the disease, the treatments and surgeries. Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization providing supportive services and education resources for young women affected by breast cancer, no matter where they are on their journey.

YSC Tour de Pink is much more than just a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness and support important programs for young women affected by breast cancer. I hope I can count on you to help me reach my fundraising goal!

How can your donation help?

$25 funds YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.

$100 provides a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.

$250 allows YSC to train four survivors to serve as a peer supporters.

$500 funds a Young Empowered Survivor (YES) educational program.

$1,200 makes it possible for two young women to travel to the YSC Summit, an annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer and their co-survivors.

Any amount helps!

As I train for this amazing ride I plan to update this page frequently along with my social media accounts so that all of my supporters can see my progress.

If you would like to donate to my husband in addition to me, or instead of me you can find his fundraising page here: west.ysctourdepink.org/Christopher

Thank you in advance for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity.

The 2017 Tour de Pink West Coast ride will start in Westlake Village, CA, wind down the California coastline and end in Santa Monica Bay. What can be more synonymous with California than the Beach Boys? As they sang in Surfin' Safari, "I loaded up Woody with the boards on top." We'll use another form of transportation to tour part of the beautiful coast!

Beginning at Westlake Village and descending through Arroyo Conejo (Valley of the Rabbit) around Camarillo, we’ll ride through Oxnard to the Pacific Coast Highway. Heading north to Santa Barbara we get our first glimpse of the crashing surf. The Metric Century riders reach the hotel first, while the Century riders take a detour through the foothills.

On Saturday, (day 2 and the one-day ride option) we begin our southward leg along the coast and turn inland to view the scenic roads around Lake Casitas, where the view is breathtaking. Descending through the canyon we tour around Ventura to our second overnight stay on Pierpont Bay.

Sunday, day 3, is always the fun day, or "Sunday Fun Day". Riding the coast, we pass through Point Mugu State Park, then past Malibu to our celebration destination in Santa Monica Bay. Right next to the sparkling ocean at Will Rogers State Beach you will CELEBRATE your accomplishment, take a dip in the ocean, and most of all, take photos to commemorate this glorious weekend. Bid a fond adieu and promise to meet again.

Ride totals: 207 miles. 8,128 feet elevation
