  • Kobie Wagener joined the Canary Century Club (elite riders who complete the 100-mile course) in 2016. He's also a seasoned fundraiser and a resource for fellow Challenge fundraisers.

  • We used the Canary Challenge as a birthday party for my daughter's ninth birthday. She invited five friends to ride with her. None of them had ever participated in an organized ride. They loved it and wanted to ride the course a second time. One girl asked if she could do it with us next year, and another girl said she wanted to do this for her birthday party! I had tears in my eyes when they rode across the finish line! What an honor and privilege to share this day with the next generation.
