Breathe California Bike Trek

The Folsom Rotary Bike Team participated in the 33rd Breathe California Bike Trek on Saturday, October 17.  Unfortunately, John and Susan Lindow were out of town.  Jerry Avila was nursing an injury from earlier in the week and Frank Woods was have issues with his feet so we only had three cyclists this year.  Garry Parlier, Yvonne Sundahl, and Brent Sundahl represented us well.  The ride was in Granite Bay and Loomis.  The Rotary Team raised $2,764 for clean air and healthy lungs.  Thanks to all the Folsom Rotarians who supported our cycling team.
