Two visually impaired riders and their captains were sponsored by the foundation and completed the 30-mile ride at this year’s annual Central Coast Classique as part of Team GO See.
GO See Foundation founder, Allyson Buerger was the “Stoker” with her “Captain,” Deana Steen while Susan Nazionale stoked for her Captain, Kevin Coburn. All four riders enjoyed the ride from Arroyo Grande to Avila Beach and back.
The morning began cool and foggy in Arroyo Grande at the starting line:

The 15 Mile Marker was in Avila Beach

At the Finish Line, the riders still had plenty of energy to joke around and celebrate a great day of getting out and being engaged in their world:
