On Saturday, March 22, cyclists of all kinds will descend upon the Samsung Semiconductor in Austin for an event every Austin bike rider looks forward to: the 20th Annual Rosedale Ride. An event organized as a fundraiser for the Rosedale School, the Rosedale Ride is an opportunity to get out on the road with hundreds of other riders and tour the gorgeous streets of our wonderful town. As Austin’s bicycle accident attorneys, Shefman Law is thrilled to be entering the time of year when major rides and events start happening, and the Rosedale Ride is one of our favorite, both for its sense of community and the great cause it supports.
The Rosedale School is Austin’s only school for children with multiple disabilities, and the Rosedale Ride is an essential event for the financial health of the school. Starting at the Samsung Semiconductor, cyclists are encouraged to enjoy rides of 20+, 40+, and 60+ routes. Even better, the event hosts a small loop of 12 miles for children to enjoy! This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event, so there will be many special perks for riders. The Ride coordinators have even put together a 20th anniversary jersey for the occasion, giving each and every Austin bicyclist the chance to commemerate the historic day. After the days ride, there’s plenty of food and drink for the whole family, not to mention live entertainment. The Rosedale Ride is the perfect event for connecting with Austin’s wonderful cyclist community, all while providing support for an incredibly worthy cause.
Here in Austin, we’re proud of the fact that we do things a bit differently, and the Rosedale School is an excellent example of that. In the same way that Shefman Law looks out for the interests of people that have been involved in bicycle accidents and have sustained bicycle injuries, the Rosedale School looks out for members of our community with disabilities that can often be forgotten by the rest of society. Their work is a testament to all the great work being done in Austin, and the Rosedale Ride offers the ability to give support to a wonderful organization while enjoying everything we love about riding in Austin. As Austin bicycle accident attorneys, we’re incredibly lucky to share a city with such a noble and worthy cause
As experienced Austin bicycle accident attorneys, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that safety, even during large cycling events, should always be on your mind. The roads can be a dangerous place for a cyclist, and making sure to stay diligent and wear your helmet at all times can go a long way towards keeping the day a fun as well as safe. If you or anyone you know should experience a bicycle crash you believe warrants compensation, get in touch with the bicycle accident injury attorneys at Shefman Law. We fight for you, and we win.
