Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

CANIDAE All Natural Pet Foods Supports Tour of Amgen 8 Stage Bike Race Event for 2009

Considered to be the most important and popular race held on U.S. soil, the 2009 Amgen Tour of California will once again bring together world-class field of cyclists and teams from multiple nations including Lance Armstrong and the Amgen Tour of California's two-time defending champion Levi Leipheimer's team, Astana. Armstrong's highly anticipated return to competitive professional cycling for the 2009 season, after a three-year hiatus, began in January and the Amgen Tour of California will be his first U.S. race of the season.

CANIDAE Pet Foods will join Armstrong in supporting the race's record of promoting cancer awareness and research by conducting the CANIDAE AmGen Road Bike Raffle with half of the proceeds going to Cancer Research for Pets and the other half to Armstrong's Livestrong Cancer Awareness Foundation.

"I will be competing in the Amgen Tour of California," confirmed Armstrong. "The level of competition, the challenge of the course and the highly professional atmosphere make it the ideal situation for me to continue my training. I also have chosen the Amgen Tour of California because of the race's record of supporting cancer awareness and research through their Amgen Breakaway from Cancer™ initiative, and their commitment to partner with our Lance Armstrong Foundation. I look forward to racing once again in the United States in what we consider the best race outside of Europe."

The Grand Prize Winner of the CANIDAE AmGen Road Bike Raffle will receive a road bike (estimated value $1,200) at a drawing to be held on Saturday, February 21, 2009 in Pasadena, California at Stage 7 of the tour. Winners need not be present to win. Tickets for the CANIDAE Road Bike Raffle will cost $2.00 for one or $5.00 for three and will be available in person at the CANIDAE Tour of Amgen Lifestyle Festival booth setup at five of the eight races that comprise the tour in addition to the prologue that begins the event in Sacramento on Saturday, February 14, 2009. The road bike will be on display and tickets will be available at the CANIDAE Tour of Amgen booth for the Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz, Paso Robles, Solvang and Pasadena stages. The AmGen Lifestyle Festival area is located near the finish line at each Finishing City.

Part of the CANIDAE Mission Statement to promote Responsible Pet Ownership includes proper medical care and support for pets with health issues such as cancer. Nothing is more central to the core values of CANIDAE than the health, happiness and well being of pets.

In addition to selling raffle tickets benefiting the cause of fighting cancer in people and pets, CANIDAE Pet Foods will hand out samples and coupons.
