1. Vision Quest – ride report from Jeremiah Bishop the new Vision Quest record holder

2. Traverse event update

Jeremiah Bishop posted his experience in setting a new record for the Vision Quest on his blog at:



We’ve had a change in the location of the packet pickup for the Traverse. Packets will be giving out at Rock N Road Cyclery in Irvine.

We are encouraging everyone to pick up their number plate and event t-shirt packets at Rock n’ Road Cyclery in Irvine on Thursday, May 6th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This would save all of us tons of time the morning of the event. If you don’t pick your packet up at Rock n Road you will need to pick it up the day of the race at 6:00 AM.

Rock N Road is located at:

6282 Irvine Blvd
Irvine, CA 92620
Near by Santa Ana, Tustin, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach


If you cannot make the event and want to transfer your spot:

To transfer your spot you must first email us the name of the person.

You then (or the person taking your place) pay a transfer fee consisting of a money order (no personal checks) in the amount of $25.00 made out to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund.

You or the person taking your place must also include with that money order the event application (attached) filled out and signed by the person who is taking your place. It is also important that you write the name on the top of the app of the person who the spot was transferred from.

Mail the money order and filled out application to:

The Warrior’s Society
11278 Roanoke Court
Cypress, Calif. 90630

Once the application and money order is received I will notify you that the change has been made. All apps mailed in for transfers must be postmarked no later than Saturday, April 24th.

Executive Director
