Off The Front –Forward Advantage Charity Bicycle Ride Event Recap

Saturday October 13, 2012 the Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers with the assistance of the Fresno ARES group provided radio communications support for the 2012 Off the Front Charity Bicycle ride. Due to road construction the event was modified and shortened for this year. The routes consisted of a 45 Mile, 25 mile and a 11 mile ride.

Amateur personnel provided radio communications for three rest-stops, 3 SAG (supply & gear) vehicles and the command post. Thank you to the volunteers who helped out:
