Information and resources for you to participate in this climb-for-charity challenge.
You logged all those base miles in March. Now let's do some climbing!
April Alpinsanity is a climb-for-charity challenge. For every 100 feet of elevation gain that riders achieve, the DBC will donate 5 cents from its philanthropy budget to be disbursed evenly between two local non-profit organizations. We are pleased to select the Food Bank of Yolo County and the Woodland Bike Campaign to be our beneficiaries this year.
To clarify how this challenge will work, if DBCers cumulatively climb 1,000,000 feet, $500 will be dispersed equally between the two non-profits (Woodland Bike Campaign and the Food Bank will each receive $250).
It is very easy to participate in April Alpinsanity:
- Get on your bike and go out and climb as much as you can during the month of April
- There is no entrance fee.
- There is also no T-shirt or jersey.
- Every 100 feet matters.
- You don't have to set a goal.
- Mountain biking is encouraged.
- Check the Ride Calendar for special rides and events.
- If you'd like to lead a climbing ride, contact the Ride Calendar Coordinator.
- When your legs are burning, your heart is pounding and your lungs are gasping for air, remember that you are helping to support two very worthy community organizations.
- Log your elevation gains on our Alpinsanity Elevation Tracker
- Help! I don't have a GPS/Garmin. How do I calculate how much I climbed? Learn about other ways to calculate your elevation gain.
- That's it. We'll do the rest, and let you know how much money you raised for the Food Bank and Woodland Bike Campaign.
