May 19th - Wheels Up For Corey

In the first of several one-day cycling events throughout the spring and summer, The Wheels rode and played before their Mansfield, MA show at Rose Garden Coffeehouse.  The Children's Studio, a preschool in Norton, MA, played host to the cycling event for young and old on this gorgeous Saturday.

So, how did this happen?  This year we took a year off from the intensive bike tour we've done the last three years to schedule one-day biking events in a number of communities around the country.  If we can organize with a local charity and raise some money for a good cause, all the better.  If we just get out and ride with good people, that's good enough. 

In May, we partnered with Rose Garden Coffeehouse and The Studio Preschool in Norton,  Massachusetts.  They helped organize a 15 mile ride and children's cycling activities while raising money for a young family connected to the preschool who is dealing with a stage IV colon cancer diagnosis and overwhelming medical bills.
