Team Sticky Fingers and Friends
Welcome to the Team Sticky Fingers & Friends Raise and Ride Fundraising page!
We are fun-loving ladies in the Washington DC area committed to riding and racing our bikes. You'll see us out throughout the race scene – crits, road, cross, mountain biking, time trials and even triathlons.
In addition to racing, we aim to be a fixture in the cycling community and we are committed to participating in local and national cycling advocacy groups, non-profits and organizations including the most amazing Phoenix Bikes! We love getting more people on bikes, to learn more about bikes...and have a lot of exciting adventures on bikes!
Our Raise & Ride Team is open to everyone - so come on and join us and help us raise some FUNds! Head over to the BikeReg Registration page for the event and select "Team Sticky Fingers & Friends" when you create your profile!
Phoenix Bikes Raise + Ride: Sizzling Summer Century
This year's Sizzling Summer Century ride will be a little different than normal, but that's 2020! We're changing our summer ride to make sure everyone stays safe and socially distant, but also that we re-connect this community through the joy of cycling. Your challenge this year is to come up with a ride that challenges you and to raise money to support the mission of Phoenix Bikes. You can ride the full 100 mile century on the Washington and Old Dominion Trail--our typical route--or you can make your neighborhood trails into a race course. Whether it's the most mileage in the smallest area or the longest ride in a single day, we'll be giving out amazing prizes to the individuals or teams with the most creative ride. This summer ride is also a peer-to-peer fundraiser for Phoenix Bikes, and we encourage you to reach out to your friends and family to help fundraise. We're also giving prizes to the most successful fundraisers! Last year, you raised over $27,000 total, so let's try and top that this year. We can't wait to get rolling!
The mission of Phoenix Bikes is harnessing the power of bikes to help youth build passion, purpose, and a place in the community. We are an Arlington nonprofit that uniquely combines youth educational programs with a full-service professional bike shop and retail store. Since our launch, we have had the opportunity to engage thousands of teens, with over 900 earning their own bikes so far. Local youth, ages 12 to 17, are invited to participate in bike refurbishment and retail operations as they contribute to the daily operations of the Phoenix Bikes shop located in South Arlington, VA. Through these experiences, our students are not only given the opportunity to learn technical mechanical skills and put in hard work, but also develop their problem solving abilities and gain self confidence.
