Due to the developing situation with COVID-19, rideATAXIA Norcal 2020 is now a virtual event.

We invite you to set an activity challenge (cycling, running, walking, wheeling, stretching, cooking, meditating...)  for yourself for the month of May and join us online to report your progress, help spread awareness and raise funds for FA research. May is FA Awareness Month, so each week, we will post fun facts and challenges for our participants. There is no fee to register and you can earn cool rideATAXIA swag, by fundraising. Help us reach our goal of $50,000!

rA NorCal Fundraising Incentives

We've formed a rideATAXIA NorCal group on Strava, so if your activity involves logging miles, please join. Our goal is to recruit 100 Strava team members. With 100 team members, we think we could log the equivalent miles of traveling coast to coast. How cool would it be to have traveled virtually the distance between me (in Pennsylvania) and you (in California) of 3,000 miles? 

rideATAXIA benefits FARA- a nonprofit organization dedicated to research leading to treatments and a cure for Friedreich's ataxia (FA). FA is a debilitating, life shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder.


rideATAXIA cycling events across the United States have raised invaluable awareness for FA and $8.5 million for FARA since 2007.
