“SDMBA is honored to be the charity partner of the Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride and to have such amazing ongoing support from its founders, with Monuments of Cycling and Canyon continuing to ride side by side with us through challenging times,” said Susie Murphy,  Executive Director of SDMBA. “With so many events canceled in 2020, we are incredibly appreciative of their commitment to help us improve trail access for mountain biking in San Diego County and helping local youth explore those trails through Outdoor Outreach.”

“Canyon is a global brand, but we are well aware that building community begins at home,” said Blair Clark, Canyon US President. “That’s why we’ve partnered with the Belgian Waffle Ride, which began near our US headquarters showroom in Carlsbad, and that’s why we are passionate about working with SDMBA to expand trail access in San Diego county. Similarly, the donations to Outdoor Outreach whose mission is to use outdoor experiences to transform “inner-city troubled youth” to play, learn, serve and share are aligned with our purpose of inspiring riders to ride. I have personally seen the success of Outdoor Outreach for a decade and been amazed at their ability to change the trajectory of a child to overcome seemingly prohibitive disadvantages and eventually even graduate from a college such as Stanford University. BWR, SDMBA, and Outdoor Outreach are some of the best examples of building our community.”
