Cycling 4 Veterans Saturday, October 7, 2017
Hosted by Veterans First Program at Las Positas College and the C4V volunteer group organizers. As a veterans and military supported event, C4V is leading the way in Northern California, and this year they are featuring three epic rides for 30 miles, 55 miles and 115 miles!
This is a new event for LARK to support. Due to the routes, we have also enlisted the help of Stanislaus Amateur Radio Association. Radio communications along the route should be an interesting challenge.
