Marin Cyclists, a club established in 1963, is the host of this past weekend’s Marin Century ride. Over 2500 cyclists rode several different routes throughout Marin during the 100% volunteer-supported event, aided by the generously-stocked rest stops and a big post-ride feast. We were delighted to once again pick up the event’s extra food and get it to those who need it. Thank you and Chapeau! to the Marin Cyclists team! www.marincyclists.com
Marilyn is one of our original volunteers and has completed 54 food trips so far. She’s very responsive, likes variety in her food trips (she’s driven all over the county on them), and creates great trip reports—sometimes with photos. We’re so happy that she’s continued to volunteer with ExtraFood for over a year and a half!
