The 150 abled and challenged riders who left San Francisco, California on Saturday, October 13, 2012 for the 2012 Dodge Million Dollar Challenge rolled through Carlsbadistan this morning (October 19, 2012), before ending their journey in La Jolla, California having ridden 620 miles down the California Coast in only six days.

The riders, who had full support, ate great meals, and stayed in five-star hotels along the way, helped raise more than $1 million for the Challenged Athlete’s Foundation.

Former participant and professional cyclist Christian Vande Velde says that ride was an inspiration:

“It was one of the most rewarding weeks of cycling I have ever experienced,” he said. “It was amazing to ride for a cause that helps change the lives of so many athletes, and gives them the chance to enjoy what we do every day. In the end, I think I left the most inspired of all.”

Several Carlsbadistan based businesses helped sponsor the ride including Life Technologies, SKLZ, and Spy Optic. For more information on how you can ride the coast next year or help someone who is riding, click the link.
