Hire a professional at the California BikeFest

The California BikeFest offers the chance to ride with a professional as part of the Cycling Sherpa programme. Cycling Sherpas are past and current professional cyclists who are 'for hire' for the rides in Ventura, California, on Saturday, December 6, 2008 starting at the Crowne Plaza, Ventura Beach.

Pros include: Three-time US Pro Champion "Fast" Freddie Rodriguez, current US Pro Crit Champion Rahsaan Bahati, Ivan Dominguez, Aaron Olson and others. The bidding ends at midnight, Pacific Standard Time, on Wednesday, December 3.

Cycling Sherpas are offering their domestique services to the highest bidder for the day, with all proceeds benefiting Breakaway from Cancer – a national initiative created by Amgen to increase awareness of the important resources available to cancer patients from prevention to education, and patient care to advocacy and financial support.

The 2008 California BikeFest offers other activities during the day, such as bike education, exhibits, organised rides or a unique cyclo-cross endurance race at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. The entry is free.
