All For One Century Support
The century ride in support of the Van Purser Foundation is on again for this year and scheduled for Oct 5.  NGCA will be supporting this ride in multiple ways, volunteering, riding and generally helping out in any way we can.   And we need your involvement.  Right now, Nello is looking for volunteers to be part of the team.  Please see his note below and respond to Nello if you can help. 
From Nello: Van’s inspiration has been hard at work at the Van Purser Foundation in planning our signature event the “ALL FOR ONE 100” century ride.  In an effort to make this event one we can all take part in and benefit from we’d like to form volunteer teams.   With Van’s help we have come up with the “dream volunteer team”.  We need team members and team leaders of all skill types.  So as to not start any public fights over positions let’s just respond to me privately at   We will need the following teams: route safety, registration, sag stops, merchandising, swag/like kind endorsements, finish food/bev, marketing/sponsorships,  and packet pickup.  Please join us by choosing a position now.  The Van Purser Foundation is: “Pulling Together To Assist Cyclists In Times Of Need”.  For more information on the foundation go to:
