2017 Biking For Baseball Team Ride
The Biking for Baseball team ride of 2017 rolls out of Seattle Washington alongside and in support of Tim’s Big Ride on Opening Day April 10th. Heading south along the West Coast the team will pick up US Highway 101 along the Oregon coastline and into Northern California.
The journey is highlighted by a kids clinics in partnership with a local youth mentoring organization on the morning of April 23rd in the Bay Area. After catching an A’s game on the 23rd the Team Riders will bid Tim farewell and head home as he continues on to hit all 30!
Each rider is charged with personally covering their own ride expenses. So fundraising and donations go entirely to aid in program and outreach costs for Biking for Baseball during the 2016 season. Read about each rider and contribute to their campaign below. If you’d like to join up, sponsor, or help out give us a call! We’d love to add to the team.

Meet Your 2017 Team Riders!
Adam (on the left) was one of the original schemers of B4B. He was a rider in 2012 and now serves as Chairman of the Board for Biking for Baseball. Adam lives and works in Denver as a water resources engineer and has an affinity for winning 5k themed runs and cheering on 2015 The World Champion Kansas City Royals Baseball Club.
Since doing the ride in 2012 Rex has been busy. He not only grew a beard and bought a tiny house, but also built this website and convinced the Biking for Baseball board to allow him to sit as Executive Director.
Back Again! He’s got great hair and a great spirit, and despite us misspelling his name every year for 3 straight years Corie is back for his 3rd B4B Team Ride!
A late addition to the 2016 Team Ride, Gable Silvian jumped right into the deep end of the B4B pool with a cruiser bike and skate shoes. And boy did he kill it! A skilled filmmaker and cat dad, gable is a Michigan native who definitely earned the title of B4B’er the hard way.
Tom, or TK as he’s sometimes known, (not because of his initials, but because he’s Tele-Kinetic) is a young documentary filmmaker with a whole mess of charity-bike-films under his belt. Tom did Matt’s 2015 ride video and is on the team in 2017 to do a little less shooting and a little more riding!
Eric is Cory’s big, LITTLE brother. A new addition to the team in 2017 Eric is like every B4B’er ramping up to their first ride; young, confident, headstrong, and unprepared. He’s going to do great and we’re going to have a great time watching.
