A special 'thank you" to one of our past sponsors, ACURA American Motors, for 12 years from 1996-2008 and over 6,000 YES sponsored youth rode for free in the ACURA LA Bike Tour. Everyone finished the ride, all 12 year, with a smile.

An email quote from a 2012 Orange-A-Thon rider:
"Tana, I had a great time, despite the rainy beginning! I'm sorry your turnout was far less then expected - I'm sure the weather contributed to it. But please do the ride again - it is definitely a great ride for families and more experience riders, who just want a nice, straight forward experience for a change. Best wishes, Cara
