Livestrong Challenge returns to downtown Davis

By From page A7 | May 23, 2013

The celebration of what made the bicycle — and the sport of road cycling — special on the American landscape continues when the Livestrong Challenge returns to Davis, its third consecutive year here.

Central Park will host the June 22-23 Challenge Village, from which a series of graded cycle tours will leave that Sunday. More than 1,500 cyclists participated in the 2011 Challenge, which raised almost $1 million for cancer patients.

On Sunday, June 23, cyclists will be able to ride distance ranges from 10 to 100 miles, based on experience and fitness levels, through the beautiful landscape of Northern California.

An integral part of the event is the Livestrong Challenge Village on the Green. The Central Park site will be home to many health-related and information booths.

For more information, call the Davis city manager’s office at 530-757-5602. To register for a ride, visit www.livestrong.org.
