Tomorrow is my big day in the saddle. I can’t believe this day has finally arrived. As per usual, I am not as prepared for this ride as I would like to be, but I will grind through the 103 mile ride with over 8,900 feet of climbing. Thank you to all those who have supported this fund raising effort for San Jose Power Soccer. I will post an update here and on Facebook following the ride.
The coach of the San Jose Steamrollers is cycling in Levi’s GranFondo to raise money for the youth of the San Jose Power Soccer program. John Connolly will cycle over 100 miles through the Sonoma Coastal ranges on Saturday, October 1st. While some of the professional in the peleton will finish the ride in 4-5 hours, John will most likely be on his bike at least double that time. Please help support the San Jose Power Soccer program by sponsoring his efforts. The King Ridge Foundation, which is the charitable arm of this event, has graciously agreed to pass through 100% of the funds raised from John’s sponsorship to the San Jose Power Soccer program.

Cycling for San Jose Power Soccer
For those supporters following the Steamrollers on Facebook, you already know that the Steamrollers finished 3rd in the Champions Cup National Tournament this past June in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Steamrollers played well against some tough competition, but our rivals from Southern California tied the semi-final match in the closing seconds and then went on to beat us by a goal in overtime. It was a tough loss for the team, but they bounced back to beat the Minnesota Northern Lights to take 3rd place in the late afternoon match.
The Steamrollers look forward to starting another exciting year of Power Soccer and have added another strong player to their roster with the off season transfer of Stanley Kuang from the BORP Crushers. Our first home games will be at the Bascom Community Center on October 22nd at the Bascom Community Center gym. Come check out the Steamrollers in action.
If you want to meet the Steamrollers and try your luck in a Power Soccer chair, come meet the team during our 2nd annual Fan Fest on October 8th from 1- 3pm at the Bascom Community Center gym.
