Vail Daily letter: Thanks, Vail Resorts

The Cycle Effect would like to thank Vail Resorts EpicPromise and CME for their generous donation of a 15-passenger Ford E350 van. The Cycle Effect fits into a key EpicPromise criterion ­youth development by helping young girls to develop confidence and life skills through the sport of mountain biking. With its rapid growth of 300 percent in one year in Eagle County and expansion into Summit County, the Cycle Effect’s need for transportation was evident. Through Vail Resorts’ philanthropic giving council, a vehicle donation was seen as the most beneficial way to foster The Cycle Effect’s plans for more growth and delivering bikes to young women.

One of the reasons for our growth is that reliable transportation to races and training is a hurdle for many of the girls. In order to get these young ladies where they need to be and to allow them to fully participate in The Cycle Effect, we need vehicles. CME’s van has proven to be safe, reliable and in excellent condition. We simply could not run our program without vehicles like these.

We deeply thank all in this community who support us and are so grateful for this donation from Vail Resorts and CME.
