Ride for a Reason

Registration is open for the 2024 Ride 4 A Reason bike ride.

Ride 4 A Reason is an awesome event that raises funds for 12 Oakland public middle and high schools. The bike ride starts from Oakland Technical High School and ends at our state capital in Sacramento, shorter routes are also available. Last year, we had more than 350 riders and raised close to $230,000. As a result, each of the participating schools received just over $15,000 to foster student learning, growth, leadership and success.

There are 4 ways to be get involved:


Register today! When you sign up, please indicate that you are connected with 'Montera Middle School'.  And if you would like to raise money, you can join the Montera fundraising page during registration.

We need 5-7 volunteers to run a rest stop.  Please email if you are interested in volunteering.
