Cyclists from throughout the region will call on pedal power Saturday, Nov. 2, to help individuals and families affected by mental illness.

NAMI California, the state organization of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is organizing a bike event to raise awareness about mental illness, treatment and recovery, as well as the need for important services and support in the community for individuals and families affected by mental illness.

Riding under the banner “Fight Stigma and Ride,” cyclists will pedal for hope and change.

“Mental illness affects one in four families every year,” said Stephen Fleming, president and CEO of River City Bank, which is partnering with NAMI on the event.

Serious mental illnesses include major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, major anxiety disorders, borderline personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. These illnesses, which are treatable, affect people from all walks of life.

The event will begin and end in Davis, offering a choice of 15-, 30- and 60-mile courses. Riders will get an event T-shirt, light breakfast, lunch and fuel at rest stops.

Those who cannot participate can be virtual riders; if they raise $45 or more they’ll receive an event T-shirt.

All routes cost $45, and the registration fee is waived with $250 in fundraising. Virtual riders and volunteers may register for free.

Visit www.NamiBikes.org to sign up to ride or volunteer. For more information, email namibikes@namicalifornia.org or call 800-930-1394.
