Not only did the inaugural ride in 2011 get rave reviews, but this is a ride with a purpose. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Pikes Peak Region provides a volunteer's voice in court for children who are victims of abuse, neglect or domestic conflict and promotes community awareness to ensure safe and permanent homes. They serve both El Paso and Teller Counties and provided hope for more than 900 children last year.
