Clif Bar

"The red road is predictable, a known entity, safe, and conservative... The white road is just the opposite. It is the road less traveled. It is an unknown entity, unpredictable, and there may be danger and hardship along the way... But along with this hardship or danger, there is often reward. The reward is a sense of accomplishment—the joy and beauty of the journey along the road less traveled." - Gary Erickson, Founder of Clif Bar. Forward Racing and its athletes believe in this philosophy and the benefits of taking your own path; we seek out the White Road as Gary did building his company. We are happy to be supported by Clif Bar, not only because of their great products, but because they are a responsible company investing in important things like energy efficient building and organic farming.
