Our Club was contacted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as they were looking for volunteers to help with the Waves to Wine bike ride.   They needed people who had vehicles that could patrol the route and help riders that were tired, injured, or had bike problems.   We had 5 people from the club that gave time to help out.  Corey from our club worked all day on Saturday and Sunday, and drove over 300 miles Saturday alone!   It was really hot on Saturday, and he hauled a lot of bikers!   There were 25, 50, 75 and 100 mile loops both days.   On Saturday, they went towards the coast (Waves) and on Sunday they went north towards the winerys (Wine).   Both days the runs started and ended at the Luther Burbank Center.
