2017 Ride for Research

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Benefiting CALIFORNIA PHYSICAL THERAPY FUND

The Ride for Research is a four-day cycling event from San Francisco to LA. Each day will consist of approximately 100-130 miles of cycling. Representatives from the PT community and members of the CPTA board will make the long journey with the goal of raising awareness about the FUND and to raise money for grant funding. Come out to one of our planned events to meet the riders!
