Several members of the AEG-Toshiba-JetNetwork professional cycling team are scheduled to participate in the 5th Annual Inlet Challenge Bicycle Ride, a charity ride to benefit Kids in Distress, a Florida-based organization that is dedicated to protecting children from child abuse and neglect. “Several of our riders have personal ties to South Florida, and as an organization, we are deeply committed to the cause of helping children in need,” said Managing Director Ravi Rajcoomar. “This ride allows the team to show our support for a great cause and get some quality early season training in the great South Florida weather.”

Community service will continue to be a major focus of the 2007 AEG-Toshiba-JetNetwork program. The team takes part in year-round youth programming activities with CycleSafe.org, an organization devoted to promoting safe cycling habits and conditions for participants of all ages, as well as conducting riding clinics, visiting area schools and civic groups, and promoting the lifelong benefits of living a healthy and active lifestyle. More information on the Inlet Challenge Bicycle Ride and Kids in Distress is available online at www.inletchallengebikeride.org.
