Mt. Bike Pioneers Join Trips for Kids Fundraiser


Marilyn Price

Mountain biking pioneers will support Trips for Kids at the sixth annual “Brews, Bikes and Bucks”
fundraising party on February 8th from 2-6 p.m. at the Broken Drum Brewery, 1132 Fourth Street in
San Rafael. Well known mountain bike pioneers such as Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze, Scott Nicol, Jacquie
Phelan, Otis Guy, Charles Kelly, Ross Shafer, the Koski brothers, and Steve Gravenitis will be
guests at the event. There is no charge for admission, but Noah Berry, proprietor of the Broken Drum
Brewery, will donate proceeds from food and drink sales to Trips for Kids.

There will be drawing for a Jamis Mountain Bike. The bike will be on display at the Broken Drum
Brewery and advance raffle tickets will be available for sale at Trips for Kids Re-Cyclery thrift
shop at 610 4th Street in San Rafael and at the Broken Drum. Musical entertainment will be
provided by E-MAN.

Trips for Kids was founded in 1988, to provide San Francisco Bay Area inner city kids the
opportunity to challenge and reward themselves with the mountain bike experience. Since then the
organization has grown to serve thousands of deserving kids, through 35 Trips for Kids chapters in
the United States and Canada. Money raised at the 2004 “Bikes, Brews and Bucks” event will help fund
that entire Trips for Kids program.
