The April Fools Challenge is just around the corner. And this year, the City of Napa will be able to join the fun!
For those of you who may not know about it, this will be the 7th annual April Fools Challenge. Last year, 161 bicyclists competed in the April Fools’ Challenge and raised more than $14,600 for the family centers that serve St. Helena and Calistoga.
As a group, the cyclists rode 38,909 miles, and St. Helena’s 95 riders soundly beat Calistoga’s 66 riders, besting them by 5,561 miles. This was despite Calistoga having its first 1,000-mile day on the last day of the month.
Robert McCullough was named the Grand April Fool for St. Helena, logging in 1,303 miles. Peter Potrebic, who is the organizer of the event, logged in the most miles for Calistoga, 1,201; but since he is a Past Grand April Fool, the title went to Dennis Jepsen, who logged in 899 miles. Altogether, Calistogans logged in 16,674 miles.
This year, Peter Potrebic is updating the April Fools event website to allow Napa riders to log miles in competion with the riders in St. Helena and Calistoga. As in the other towns, funds raised in Napa will go to support to support worthy causes, a family-focused charitable organization in Napa (to be determined) and the program fund for Napa Bike! Thank you Peter, for opening this door.
