A Life Outdoors is a Life Well-Lived


Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail

At Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) they believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.  Since 1938, they have been your local PREMIER outdoor co-op, working to help you experience the transformational power of nature.  In 2005, REI built their newest location in Rancho Cucamonga and were successful even before they opened their doors.


REI supports community involvement especially when it comes to physical fitness and outdoor activities.  REI Rancho Cucamonga was “THE FRIENDS” first community partner and hosted our inaugural bike event in 2005.  They had barely opened and the stripes in the parking lot were still drying when they graciously opened their doors for our Poker Ride.  Participants headed out from REI over to the newly built Victoria Gardens and points around town then eventually returned to REI for food, fun, refreshment, and prize drawings.

REI believes in working with the community and developing lasting partnerships.  The Team at REI graciously gave us meeting space for several years until the point when we grew out of the space, thank you Team REI.  They have been our proud sponsor of the CUCAMONGA CHALLENGE for 14 years and we are grateful for their commitment to the Friends and their valued partnership.  Have you experienced their outdoor Team?  Please comment below.
