“This year, Mountains to Desert is inviting riders of all ages and abilities to ride a total of 50, 100 or 500 miles as an individual, team or family to help raise money for youth programs in our region. Due to COVID-19 we felt it necessary to redesign our event to keep our participants safe while still providing everyone an opportunity to ride,” said M2D President Erica Henschel.

“This year more than ever, schools and other youth organizations need our support and since riders can participate from anywhere, we hope to draw in bikers from across the country; and even if you decide not to participate yourself, you can support the event by sponsoring a rider (or a family of riders),” added Elaine Demas, President of the Just For Kids Foundation.
