Biking for Blindness
The 2nd Annual Biking for Blindness cycling event was originally conceived by two Anchor Center families who came together to raise money for Anchor Center, the school that provides both of their children, Ryder and Tivoli, with the support and education they need. Ryder’s parents, Tom and Kourtney Danielson are the founders of Cinch Cycling, where they coach to improve fitness, technique, nutrition, and strategy to perform while cycling. Tom Danielson is a well-recognized figure in the cycling world known for his 15 years of professional cycling, coaching and as a Tour de France competitor.
Tivoli’s parents, Beth and Chad Barentsen, are also no strangers to the cycling world. Chad is an accomplished competitor, participating in races across Colorado, with Beth and Tivoli cheering him on. Join these two families for an unforgettable day of riding in the beauty of Longmont, Colorado, while raising money for critical vision services!
