Cycle PA 2010 Rides for Charity

Two Doylestown businessmen want to make a difference
June 15, 2010 - PRLog -- DOYLESTOWN, PA ⎯ Michael Rubillo and Barry Peters have been training to cycle across Pennsylvania for the past year. They depart from Bull Island on the Delaware River on July 3rd and ride to West Alexander. They expect to complete their journey on July 7th.

“I have lived in Pennsylvania my entire life and can't think of a better place to live.  I look forward to the scenery and challenge of cycling across this state,” says Michael Rubillo of The Catalyze Group, a Doylestown-based technology firm.  “I am delighted to raise money for a charity that I believe in and have supported for years while doing something I love.  Being able to share this adventure with my father and a close friend only add to the value of journey in my heart and mind.”  

Rubillo’s father will ride in the car alongside Rubillo and Peters for the duration of the ride. In fact, the idea to cycle across PA began as a father-son bonding project.  When Peters joined and they had the idea to raise money for charity, the men found a new source of motivation for their rigorous training.

"I am incredibly excited about participating in Cycle PA 2010! I have long searched for the time and the cause to give back to the community,” says Barry Peters, an executive in the customer service industry (Telerx Marketing) and self-described gadget-o-phile, “A charitable cause and cycling provide the cause and the vehicle to complete this search. I thank all who have already supported our effort and those reading this that I know will find it in their hearts to help.”

A kickoff celebration will take place at Triumph Brewery on Tuesday June 29, 2010 at 5:30 PM. Tickets are $50, and includes wine, beer & hors d'oeuvres. Tickets will be sold at the door.  Credit cards are not accepted.
