Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Colorado’s leading real estate company, will host its annual “Ride the Range” charity bike ride on September 11-14, 2011.  The event will benefit several local charities, in addition to Bike Denver and the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center through the Coldwell Banker Community Foundation.   

“We are very excited about our annual Ride the Range fundraiser and look forward to our best ride ever,” said Chris Mygatt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado.  “It’s spectacular and challenging, and the funds raised will benefit great organizations.  Each stage of the ride will begin and end at a Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office along the Front Range and throughout metro Denver.  In addition, we would like to invite the public to make donations through the Ride the Range website.  You will be helping some very worthwhile charities and organizations.”

A team of 20 core riders will ride their bicycles more than 250 miles from Colorado Springs, to Denver and Evergreen, on to Boulder and Longmont and back to Denver to raise awareness and funds for local charities.  Joining the riders this year will be Bruce Zipf, president and chief executive officer of NRT, the parent company of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, along with other NRT representatives. 

The mission of the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center is to protect and save the lives of abused and neglected children through zealous legal advocacy, innovative programs and public policy reform.  Since 1981, the center has provided legal representation to more than 10,000 children.

BikeDenver was formed in the summer of 2001 to advocate for better policies and infrastructure to support increased bicycling in Denver.  The organization operates programs designed to engage and educate the public about the benefits of safe bicycling while engaging hundreds of volunteers annually for events that promote bicycling.
