Friday's Tour de Tryptophan benefits injured SoCal rider

Published November 26, 2014

FULLERTON, Calif. (BRAIN) — This Friday's 11th annual Tour de Tryptophan fun ride/fundraiser will raise money to to help Brad "Moose" Rasmussen, a mountain biker who suffered a spinal cord injury at Snow Summit Mountain Bike Park in Big Bear, Calif., on July 3.

Sice the accident, Rasmussen has limited movement in his legs and feet, but is determined to walk and ride again as soon as possible.

The ride will be on the Fullerton Loop, an 11.5-mile suburban mountain bike trail.

The fun ride goes from noon Friday until noon on Saturday. A donation of $40 gets you a commemorative T-shirt from the event.

"We don't care if you ride one lap, 20 laps, or no laps. Just come out and have a good time," said organizer Steve Boehmke. The current record is 18 laps (207 miles), held by Jim Cooke.

If you'd like to buy a shirt to help Rasmussen but can't attend, send $40 via PayPal to and specify your shirt size.

If you would like to donate items for prizes, contact Courtney Chambers at (949) 903.5353.
