2016 Keg Ride
The 2016 charity ride, from Fit & Fuel Bicycle Café to Riptide Brewing, benefited Dr. Joanne Gonzales. Joanne Gonzalez, a 36-year-old veterinarian and avid cyclist, had an accident on May 14, 2016 while road cycling in Sa Calobra (Majorca, Spain). Although she has remained in a coma, in July Joanne was able to return to Florida to continue her treatment, and as of the beginning of August is beginning to show promising improvements in her therapies. Fit & Fuel was proud to raise $9600 from the Keg Ride to help with Joanne’s costly treatments.
