Benefitting the Brent Thomson Memorial Fund

Fullerton, CA – November 24, 2009 – - If you’re in Southern California this Friday after Thanksgiving, come burn your Turkey off for a good cause at the Six…Six…Sixth Annual Tour de Tryptophan/24 Hours of the Fullerton Loop.

This fund-raiser/fun ride commences at noon on Friday and finishes at noon on Saturday. As it is a fun ride with no rules, you can start or finish at any time. Do one lap, go home for the evening and do another in the morning. Or ride your brains out for 24 Hours. Seventeen laps seems to be the reigning record.

RIDE WITH FRIENDS, SUPPORT A GOOD CAUSE, BURN SOME TURKEY OFF!
The Fullerton Loop is an 11-mile network of suburban trails that pass through city parks, horse trails, hidden pathways and creekside wilderness. Originally pieced together by Richard Cunningham of Mantis Bikes and Mountain Bike Action fame in 1983, hundreds of people ride and train on the famed loop every week.

This 24 Hour event was conceived as a celebration of the Loop, an excuse to burn off Thanksgiving dinner, and an opportunity to support a good cause.

STUFF THE BRENT THOMSON MEMORIAL FUND
This year’s event benefits the Brent Thomson Memorial Fund, honoring our good friend BT that created most of the trails that we enjoy at Bootleg Canyon, outside of Boulder City, Nevada.
Thomson passed away earlier in the year, and his artist son Barret is working with other artists to create a sculpture honoring Brent to be erected on site at Bootleg Canyon. Brent’s spirit lives on through the many lives he touched during his time here on earth.

PAST RECIPIENTS
Past recipients of funds raised at the Tour de Tryptophan include Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Hans Rey’s Wheels 4 Life Charity, benefitting cycling-oriented needs in Africa, the Tara Llanes Recovery Fund and more.
The ride will start and end in the upper parking lot of the Courthouse in Fullerton at Harbor and Berkeley. You can show up at any time to donate $30 and receive the Motorhead-inspired T-Shirt while supplies last.

PLEASE SEND THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TO DAVE “CRASH” COLLINS
One of our good friends and Fullerton Loop regulars – Dave “Crash” Collins – has just found out that he has a very severe cancer situation.
Dave MAY try to make it to the beginning of the ride on Friday, but the bottom line is we’ll be discussing plans at the ride to throw him a party to show him our love and appreciation before the year is out. If you know Dave and would like to send him well wishes, his email is crashinnovations@msn.net.

Wow, it’s been a tough year in some ways for a lot of people. Let’s get together, give thanks for the good things, friends and times we have. Rock On. Peace.
