“I rode with my wife Carolyn and friends, Richard and Christine from Chicago. The rides were well laid out and well marked. They were tough but fair. My friends had such a good time riding, enjoying dinner and listening to the music each evening that they are planning on returning next year.” – Mike Balaban, a member of PHP’s Board of Directors and avid cyclist, rode 50 miles on all three days.
“I am so pleased this is back. I had a great time and already registered for next year.” – Christine Deschaine returned to ride for the 15 year.
The bike trek is back. The event this year was great. Where else can you get 3 days campsite, 5 meals, 2 bands, 3 great biking courses and Firestone Beer and Wine all included at a great price. On top of that, it all goes to a great charity, People Helping People, in the process! – Joe Bishop
“When it switched to People Helping People, we thought, that’s a really good cause too. We really want to help people who need help with housing and food. So Dave and I were happy to do the race,” – Vicki Book
“The Wine Country Bike Trek combines everything that I love about this area; great people, beautiful scenery, delicious food and wine and great biking. Biking through the beautiful rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley allows you to gain a new perspective which culminates into a huge sense of accomplishment all while raising funds for a great organization, People Helping People. After 7 years of doing this ride, I am already looking forward to my 8th year. You deserve a weekend like this!” – Laureen Killenberger
