Vail Daily letter: Thanks for great Casual Classic Bicycle Ride

Vail, CO, Colorado

The ECO Trails Committee would like thank the very generous organizers, sponsors, donors and participants in this year’s 24th annual Casual Classic Bicycle Ride from Breckenridge to Vail. All was fantastic and the weather could not have been better. The Sonnenalp Foundation, Faessler Family and Sonnenalp staff hosted yet another excellent event to benefit the Foundation as well as the ECO Trails program and the effort to construct a valley-wide trail system. It could not have happened without the commitment and support of many.

Special thanks to Rosana and Johannes Faessler, the Sonnenalp Resort of Vail and all their great employees, race organizer Michelle Davis, Colorado Mountain Express and drivers, Brian at Penske Truck Rental in Minturn, Jeff Wetzel and Greg Barrett of ECO Transit, The Golden Bear, Knox Galleries, Vail Bike Tech, Venture Sports, Master Gallery, National Velvet, Brown Palace of Denver, Vista Restaurant-Arrowhead, Christie Lodge, Eagle Ranch Golf Club, Axel’s, Kitchen Collage, Simba Run Vail Condos, Cos Bar, Luca Bruno, Pismo Glass, Sysco Foods. The success of the event would not have been possible without you. Thanks for supporting ECO Trails.

The Faessler Family announced the 25th Anniversary of the Casual Classic Ride will take place in August, 2010. Michelle Davis, ride organizer, is happy to put your name down on a list to be notified. You can contact Michelle at We can all look forward to an extra special event next year.
