The Growl­ing Beaver Brevet com­bines rid­ing for a cause with the tradition of ran­don­neur­ing, chal­leng­ing par­tic­i­pants to 40-, 100- or 200-km cour­ses on a mix of rail trails, gravel and paved roads. As per tradition, rid­ers check in at points along the way. At check-ins, there is also en­ter­tain­ment and lo­cally made fare. The fundrais­ing sup­ports the Davis Phin­ney Foun­da­tion and Parkingo Well­ness So­ci­ety, which help peo­ple with Parkinson’s live well and ex­plore the role of ex­er­cise in slow­ing the dis­ease’s pro­gres­sion.
