About Us

 

In 2001, Gene Cerise, an avid cyclist, started the “Country Coast Classic Bike Ride” as a fundraiser for the Cambria Youth Center. Gene succumbed to leukemia in 2004 but his legacy lives on today as we prepare for the 16th Annual Gene Cerise Memorial Country Coast Classic Bike Ride.

We are a group of community-oriented individuals, mostly cycling enthusiasts, dedicated to the youth of Cambria and the surrounding areas. We do this through the annual "Country Coast Classic Bike Ride", a volunteer-driven event. The funds we raise are used to assist in various programs that benefit the kids of Cambria, Cayucos and San Simeon.

To see a list of the youth-related programs that were supported by the 2016 Country Coast Classic Bike Ride click here.

Effective in August 2015, we incorporated as Country Coast Classic, Inc. and operate as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
