In what has become a springtime tradition, Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander is hosting his third annual’ Ride To Provide’ bike riding event across scenic northern Virginia. The date is Saturday, April 21, and sign-ups are now open at the event’s website.
Why the advanced warning? It gives you time to dust off your bike from last year’s event, and get your knees and ankles back in working condition.
The bike ride is a fun and challenging event that lets both children, parents and the recreational and avid cyclist raise money for Lorenzo’s ACES Foundation and the Bethesda Cycling Program of Walter Reed and one of its specific programs, Ride 2 Recovery.
There are four different distances to ride: 10-mile ride, 20-mile ride, 35-mile ride and 53-mile ride.
This is a very social event, as riders will meet and mingle with Redskin players, Healing Heroes from Ride 2 Recovery, Washington media personalities and the Hogettes during the post-ride celebration at Reston Town Center. Everyone will enjoy music, food and chances to win spectacular prizes and autographed items from Redskin players and sponsors.
Bring your wallets for chances to purchase and win these items. Prizes include hotel packages at Lansdowne Resort, t-shirts, $50-$60 gift cards, an autographed Redskin jersey and many more fantastic prizes. There will also be an autograph session with some of the Redskins players.
“Get up, gear up and give a little of you to make a world of difference in the lives of the less-fortunate,” said Alexander. “Join me to help ensure a brighter future for hundreds of local, underserved youth and abandoned children in Africa.”
