We are fans for the best soccer club in the country, the Sacramento Republic FC.
We are taking our passion for cheering on our team to riding our bikes to raise awareness and funds for AIDS and HIV. From now until June 30, 2021, us soccer fans will ride our bikes as many miles as possible, helping the togetheride achieve it's goal of 1.2 million miles logged.
