Vail Daily letter: Successful event

The 30th anniversary Sonnenalp Casual Classic Bike ride on Sept. 12 was a fantastic event on a glorious day! The citizen ECO Trails Committee sends a sincere thank you to the Sonnenalp Foundation, Faessler family and all the donors and volunteers that hosted the annual and locally iconic event on a stunning late summer day two weeks ago.

The event was once again well organized, the sponsors and donors more than generous, and the lunch at the end of the ride was exceptional. Thanks to the bike riders who came out to enjoy the event and support our vision to build a trail system to connect the communities of Eagle County!

The event was made possible by the Sonnenalp staff of selfless volunteers, board members of The Sonnenalp Foundation, Rosana and Johannes Faessler, event organizer Michelle Davis and many extremely generous prize donors, services donors and supporters of the Sonnenalp Foundation and ECO Trails. They are what make this event special and ECO Trails Committee and staff are honored to be a part of their annual memorable event. The donations from the Sonnenalp event are contributing to the cost of the Eagle Valley trail expansion, creating routes for our residents to ride, run and walk within and between our communities. Many thanks to the gracious and generous folks that hosted, supported and attended the Casual Classic!
