Annual bike ride benefits one of Austin’s most beloved schools


The 28th annual Rosedale Ride kicked off Saturday morning at its new location, The Pitch.

AUSTIN, Texas – The annual Rosedale Ride, one of Austin’s premier cycling events, is now hosted by The Pitch, northeast Austin’s newest hospitality, sports and entertainment destination for “the food, fun and football”.

The Rosedale Ride, now in its 28th year, is currently the largest fundraising effort supporting Rosedale School, Austin ISD’s only school exclusively for children with multiple disabilities and profound needs.

The funds raised through the walk have enabled many changes on campus, including the inclusion of paratransit, learning centers, and sensory activities, among other things. The event raises money for the Rosedale Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the children of Rosedale School.

The cyclists and their sponsors hit the road Saturday morning at 8 a.m. to help the school reach its fundraising goal of $100,000. The Rosedale Ride consisted of three routes and a fun ride for the kids.

“Rosedale serves students with AISD and multiple disabilities,” said Rosedale School Principal Elizabeth Dickey. “We’re the only campus that serves this student population and so this ride does a lot of really special things for our students. One of those includes a free prom that’s taking place in May.”
