Our Cause is our Youth in Sonoma County

Rotary’s Ride for Youth –

100% of the net proceeds from The Giro Bello will help The Rotary Club of Santa Rosa fund projects in the local and international community, with a majority going to our youth in Sonoma County.


Giro Bello purchased 100 bikes for foster children and teenagers needing transportation to get a job.
