Rest is Radical

BRB in January ✌️ We are working on practicing what we teach, so we are taking a social media break for one month to reflect on our programs & structure to make RAR more sustainable for the future. 

What the crew will be up to during this period:

  • Meet IRL in Los Angeles to work on org planning & ride bikes. 
  • Build strong foundations for all programs.
  • Reflect on whether programs align with mission.
  • Evaluate our business structure to remain financially sustainable.
  • Navigate our personal lives.
