Skinny Tire has Raised 2 Million Dollars for Cancer Charities

2014 Moab Skinny Tire Event!!!

Canyonlands National Park

 

Eleven years ago Mark Griffith started the Skinny Tire Event to help deal with his grief from losing his older brother to cancer. The first year the event only had a handful of riders mostly friends and family but raised $1,200. The event started to gain steam, and from there on out growing bigger every year. Now over 6,000 riders have participated and have donated over $2 million dollars to a variety of charities supporting cancer research and survivorship.

The comradery between cyclists, nature and donating to a very worthy cause make this event unforgettable year after year. Cancer touches so many people negatively its nice to turn some into a positive.

“It's about seeing an obstacle and knowing you can get through it. It's feeling the reward on the downside of the climb — the last day of treatment — every day you choose to live versus succumb. The scenery inspires... helps one think, experience, rejuvenate & regenerate.”- Skinny Tire Festival cyclist

Since Skinny Tire’s inception, Sheri Griffith Expeditions has always been a strong supporter, donating equipment and volunteering time.  In recent years, this event has become very personal to us as our own co-owner Arlo Tejada has been battling cancer for that past three years.  We know and have seen how this event has personally helped cancer survivors; people fighting cancer and people who have lost loved ones.

This year the Skinny Tire event is just $1,100 short of reaching their goal with only a few days left to donate to the cause. If you are interested in donating or joining in this weekend please click on the link for more info: Moab Skinny Tire Event

There has been a lot of Buzz in Moab over the last few months about a new company offering flights into the Moab Canyonlands Field Airport.  Well, we received the official word this morning that Sky West Airlines will be offering flights from Salt Lake City, Utah to Moab on a daily basis starting on March 2, 2014.  Here is the information from their official press release:

This press release and additional information about SkyWest Airlines can be found at www.skywest.com.

We are excited that there will be flights from the Salt Lake City airport, which is a large "Hub" airport.  I checked the price of the flights in June, and it looks like the round-trip flight from Salt Lake City to Moab will be about $174 per person.  I found this price through Kayak.com (the Delta website was working a little slow this morning).

Remember that if you are flying in to the Moab airport, you will either need to rent a car through Enterprise (at the airport, advance reservations required) or arrange for a shuttle into Moab, as the airport is about 14 miles outside of town.  Please feel free to call me (Kristl) at 800-332-2439 for shuttle information.
