400 Cyclists Join Tour De Rocklin To Benefit Premature Babies

ROCKLIN (CBS13) – Cyclists rolled through Rocklin Saturday to help raise money for sick babies.

The Tour de Rocklin benefits the Aly & Izy Foundation, which provides free RVs to families of premature newborns who are stuck at the hospital.

Foundation founder Cyndi Mitchell says she knows first-hand of the importance to have a bed and a shower when your baby is in the neonatal intensive care unit.

“I know the roller coaster ride that happens when you have a baby that you can’t take out of the hospital,” Mitchell said. “We had two.”

The Tour de Rocklin started at Johnson-Springview Park.

Some of the 400 riders traveled up to 60 miles, going as far as Lincoln and Penryn on their bikes.
