Two time Ironman champion and four time Ironman 70.3 champion, Sarah Piampiano, announces the second annual ‘Ride and Wine’ event to take place on Saturday July 8, 2017, in Sonoma County, California.
Benefiting iTri for Girls, the charitable organization for which Piampiano is a board member, the event encompasses a fully SAG supported bike ride alongside Piampiano. The two route options – 35 mile and 55 mile – take in the stunning coastline and the rolling hills of Sonoma County, the premier wine region in California. Post-ride lunch is offered at Hazel restaurant in Occidental, with wine pairings and tastings by winemaker Kurt Beitler of Bohème Wines.
“The Ride & Wine event is such a fun way to grow awareness and raise funds for iTri,” explains Piampiano, “while also doing something fun in the community and working with my sponsor, Bohème Wines, to help grow their brand.”
In conjunction with the event, Piampiano has organized an online silent auction also benefiting iTri for Girls. Auction items include a 7-night stay in a private villa in Provence, France, annual education membership to purplepatch fitness, recovery pillows by Bear Mattress and lots more. The auction begins on June 9th and runs through July 9th.
