Participants in the 'Rev' can choose to ride one of five routes ranging from a grueling 65 miles with a vertical change of 2000 feet through picturesque Sonoma wine country to a leisurely 5k stroll (or wheelchair roll) through host Trentadue Winery’s scenic vineyards. After the rides, participants are invited to celebratory food, wine and music festival at the winery. While the music plays, participants, volunteers and guests can receive free massages from licensed volunteer massage therapists, enjoy a gourmet barbecue, and meet and mingle with some of BORP's athletes. A brief awards ceremony closes the festivities.
Disabled and able-bodied cyclists from all over California and beyond participate in this one-of-a-kind annual event that redefines—even revolutionizes—
Returning to ride in the ‘Rev’ once again will be Paralympian Kelly Crowley, fresh off competition at the London Paralympics in road and track cycling. Ms. Crowley is a two-time gold medalist at the 2004 Athens games – as a swimmer. A Bay Area Native, she has participated in the Revolution for several years and says, “BORP's Revolution is a truly unique Bay Area institution, and I look forward to many years of mentoring, coaching, and hopefully developing Paralympic cyclists from its ranks.”
To ride in the Revolution participants 18 years and older commit to raise $350 in addition to a registration fee of $50 . Youth participants 8 years and older commit to taise $160 with a registration fee of $40. All donations to BORP are 100% tax-deducible as allowable by law.
