The music of Radio Disney icons will be at full blast on Sunday as the station’s Green Team comes to town for a 90-minute show at the Bingo Bike-a-thon in Central Park.

Showtime is noon to 1:30 p.m. as members of the popular Radio Disney Road Crew provide lively dancing, tons of audience participation, games, prizes and all that bopping music as part of a fun-filled program.

The bingo part of the bike-a-thon is a leisurely UC Davis campus tour, beginning at Central Park and looping back in time for the Radio Disney show. The ride passes some of the university’s iconic landmarks — including the late Robert Arneson’s “Egghead” sculptures and other public art — and includes a stop at the Bike Barn for refreshments.

The event, designed to raise environmental awareness and focus on the work of the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, doubles as a fundraiser for the national shrine at 303 Third St. in downtown Davis.

“Riding one’s bike is as planet-friendly as almost anything we can do in keeping our planet healthy,” Hall of Fame trustee Brodie Hamilton told The Enterprise. “This event will be a family-friendly outing that even the smallest bike riders will enjoy.”

Riders are encouraged to collect monetary pledges that will be donated to the Hall of Fame to help fund the facility’s emerging youth education programs.

Any individual cyclist who collects and turns in pledges totaling $100 or more will be in the mix to win Sunday’s drawing for a new bike from Ken’s Bike/Ski/Board or four Disneyland/California Adventure park hopper passes. The grand prize — which goes to the rider who collects the most money in pledges — is two nights’ lodging at the Disneyland Hotel for a family of four and four two-day park hopper passes.

“Whether you pledge or not, everyone is welcome,” Hamilton continues. “This is a great exercise in map reading for kids and a terrific event for all the family to be involved in.”

Once families check in — anytime after 10:30 a.m. — they will receive a bingo card on which they can check off their visited sites. Upon return to Central Park, they can settle in to enjoy the Radio Disney show.

Goodie bags, while they last, will be given to registered bike riders, and Team Green cast members will be giving helpful and fun environmental tips to kids throughout the 90-minute performance.

The event runs through 2 p.m. It is sponsored by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. in conjunction with Ink Monkey, Davis Waste Removal, Swim America, the city of Davis, Ken’s Bike/Ski/Board, Specialized, Mortgage Resource Network/Comstock, The Davis Enterprise and the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame
