The Woodland Bicycle Campaign invites everyone to revive a celebration of freedom and fun at the first-ever Cycle de Mayo benefit bike ride on Saturday, May 3.
“Cinco de Mayo is a festive celebration of Latino communities, culture and history,” a news release said. “Come celebrate with fresh air, fun and great exercise and bring your whole family, friends and co-workers.”
Cycle de Mayo will benefit the Yolo Family Resource Center, which provides families, youths and children with the tools to become healthy, self-sufficient and contributing members of our communities.
The ride begins at 8 a.m. at two locations: Woodland High School at 21 N. West St., and Davis High School at 315 W. 14th St. The route takes riders to the other high school and back, for a 25-mile circuit. Riders may choose a shorter ride that will turn around at Plainfield Station (8 or 12 miles). Plainfield Station will serve as the central party location, with music, food, beverage samples and a showcase of some wild bikes.
All types of bikes are welcome and helmets are required. Advance tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for students and children 12 years and older, and free for kids under 12.
To buy tickets, volunteer or learn more, call Maria Contreras at 530-753-1125. Advance tickets also may be purchased online at the Woodland Bike Campaign’s website starting March 1. Day-of-ride registration ($30/$15) will begin at 7:30 a.m., and riders may start pedaling at 8 a.m.
Paid participants will receive a Cycle de Mayo backpack and all participants will receive entry to the Plainfield Station party.
