10th Edition ABC Rides Tour de Trash Return for 2016

After a 5 year hiatus, the recent article article from the Press Democrat's Julie Johnson's has instigated the return of the Tour de Trash. One short ride already identified illegal dumping out on Hardin Lane justifying the return of these community road rides.

As a result, the usual suspects are organizing rides out of Santa Rosa and Petaluma for Saturday February 20, rain or shine. We need volunteers the following day to go out and pick up the trash we geolocate for drop off at the Sonoma County Public Works in Santa Rosa.

The Petaluma ride is shown below with plenty of turn-offs for the good folks that do not have time for a 50 mile ride.

Local legend, Yuri Hauswald, will be leading the ride out of the Helen Putnam Plaza in downtown Petaluma on Saturday February 20 9:30AM. Please contact me at  if you would like to also volunteer your time to pick up the trash the following day Sunday February 21 and help transport it to the Sonoma County Public Works. We will meet at Lee's Body Shop in Petaluma on Sunday February 21 at 9:00AM to go retrieve the dump identified, armed with pickup trucks and trailers and some good helping hands.

Our new father, Jonathan Lee, is still finding time to help out and is leading the 55 mile ride out of the Santa Rosa Norcal Bike Sport shop at 9:00AM on Saturday February 20. The trash pick up and drop off is also scheduled the next day, Sunday February 21 and Jonathan is looking for volunteers with pick up trucks and trailers leaving the Norcal Bike Sport shop at 9:00AM.
