Join us for a wonderful day of bike riding along both sides of the scenic Carquinez Strait! Choose a challenging 100K ride, or an easier 40K ride. Both rides begin and end at Martinez Waterfront Park (in the parking lot next to the bocce courts) travel across the Benicia and Carquinez bridges, and include Martinez, Crockett, Vallejo and Benicia. The 100K ride also includes a ride around the scenic Briones & San Pablo Reservoirs.
Ticket prices include an event t-shirt (guaranteed for pre-registered riders, available on a first-come, first-serve basis riders registering the day of the event), plenty of beverages and snacks along the route, mobile aid stations, SAG support and an after-party featuring live music by Jeff Ricketts & the Dirt Road Band and lunch catered by El Ranchero Taco Truck. We'll have adult beverages available for sale at the finish line, too. The after-party will be open to the public; family and friends and welcome to join you and celebrate your accomplishment!
This important community event is a fundraiser for the Martinez CA Rotary Foundation. All proceeds of ticket sales after nominal event expenses will go directly to projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.
Locally, funds raised will provide scholarships for students in Martinez schools, and donations to local support services including Shelter, Inc, The Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano, Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa, Boys & Girls Club of Martinez, and many other projects which change lives and build a stronger unified community.
On a national and global level, funds will be donated to Rotary projects that work to eradicate polio, and that reduce poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.
