2017 California Coastal Ride

Cyclists from the 2016 California Coastal Ride for Hemophilia

2017 marks the 16th year of the California Coastal Ride for Hemophilia. Riders travel for seven days – July 23-29 – along California’s majestic Highway 1, covering nearly 600 miles from San Francisco to San Diego to raise awareness of bleeding disorders such as hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease while raising funds to support the Hemophilia Council of California’s lifesaving programs to promote access to health care and provide educational programming for Californian’s with bleeding disorders.

You can help in three ways:
