The Britton Fund Ride 2024

Ride the roads and waves!

17th Annual Britton Fund Ride

San Diego, California

April 29, 2024


Every dollar raised through this annual fundraising event will be dedicated to research and education for our tree-care professionals in the West.


The 17th Annual Britton Fund Ride is partnering with the Western Chapter of the ISA’s 90th Annual Conference and Trade Show, which will be held in beautiful San Diego, California.

Come along and ride the roads and waves along the Pacific coast.

(Ride with GPS)

Starting at the Hyatt Mission Bay Resort, this year’s ride will deliver an amazing experience! The route includes 85 miles and 5500 feet of climbing through La Jolla into Rancho Santa Fe and back to Encinitas for lunch at the San Diego Arboretum, then back down the coast for a trip up to the Veterans Memorial at Mt. Soledad finishing back at the Hyatt. The ride will include a stop at the UCSD Early Childhood Education Center to support a fun tree- planting ceremony. This gathering with children and teachers reminds our cyclists, sponsors, and donors how important it is to care for our environment and maintain healthy trees for future generations to enjoy.

Each cyclist is asked to raise $750 in pledges. Your generosity will help create an exciting and successful event and support the important work of our tree-care professionals.

Here is what past cyclists have said about The Britton Fund Ride:

  • It was incredibly fun! Great group of people, very easy going, good food, we raised so much money – very successful and rewarding experience.
  • Lots of great people I would probably not have had a chance to get to know otherwise. Beautiful setting. Wonderful support from SAG. The choice of length of ride was really important to many people I spoke to.
  • You’re riding for a great cause and it was inspiring to me all the donations I received from residents who wanted to support tree research.
  • A complicated way of having fun and feeling good about the world. Camaraderie is HUGE. Personal challenge is a driving, but daunting, force. I guarantee participating in The Britton Fund Ride will be a personal uplifting, invigorating experience for YOU!
