Walking the Walk Riding the Ride

Brenda Takes on Ruta del Jefe

As part of my professional development I’ve been wanting to get more experience with off-road riding. While I have experience commuting and bike touring, off-road gear, trails and techniques are a new area for me! 

I’m looking forward to the possibility of expanding my cycling knowledge and experience by embarking on this journey with Ruta del Jefe, a ride through the Sonoran Desert (I’m still on the waitlist!). Off-road cycling is something I’ve been interested in for a long time but haven’t taken steps to experience until now.

I am also excited to raise money for organizations that are actively fighting for basic human rights and environmental conservation in the Sky Islands region of the Sonoran Desert, the US/Mexico borderlands in Southern Arizona, and one of the most biodiverse places in the world.

Please consider donating to this fundraiser. Any amount contributed is greatly appreciated in helping me reach my fundraising goal.
