The Gooden Center invites you and your friends to come ride like the pros!! Take advantage of having food and drink stops and vehicle support alongside the iconic Pasadena City Hall, the scenic vantage points of La Tuna Canyon, San Gabriel Valley Foothills and the historical backdrop of GMR (Glendora Mountain Road).
Join in on the fun at the fourth annual Richard Selje Ride4Recovery, October 29, 2016. The event will begin at Pasadena City Hall. Proceeds will benefit The Gooden Center, a nonprofit treatment in Pasadena since 1962.
The Gooden Center serves a community of men and their families who have come to see recovery as a lifelong process. This often begins with residence in a supportive environment that provides the tools to develop a new way of living. More than 8,700 individuals have been served.
