Tour de Menlo

"The Tour de Menlo helps raise funds to support nonprofit agencies like
Shelter Network, Second Harvest Food Bank and St. Anthony’s Dining Room
that provide food and housing for the less fortunate in our community.
Take the beautiful ride down the Peninsula with route options that range
from moderately hilly to nearly flat. The 100k route is a good workout
for experienced rides, while the 60 and 75k courses are appealing to
beginning and mid-level riders.

Tour proceeds help provide materials for volunteer Rotary tutors who
teach English at Garfield Elementary School in Redwood City and
contribute to the nearly $70,000 in need-based scholarships awarded to
more than 20 students from Menlo-Atherton, Eastside Preparatory, Sacred
Heart, Menlo School and East Palo Alto Academy high schools every year."
