Pedaling for Polio
FUN BICYCLE RIDE TO RAISE MONEY TO ERADICATE POLIO
Mount your bicycle and ride with Rotarians over the recently opened San Francisco Bay Bridge bicycle lane.
“Pedaling for Polio” kicks-off the District 5160 Conference in Berkeley. Ride begins at 10 a.m., March 24 from Hotel Shattuck, conference hotel.
The event is designed for cyclists of any skill level to ride at his/her comfortable pace to raise money to support The Rotary Foundation’s goal of eradicating polio.
Riding downhill from conference headquarters, riders cross the new, towering Bay Bridge. The 12-mile ride ends at Treasure Island with a stop for your favorite refreshment and food. A motorized support vehicle is available for cyclists to return to the hotel. The round-trip ride is approximately 24 miles.
Registration fee is $15 to cover minimal expenses with net revenue donated to The Rotary Foundation. Riders are encouraged to make an additional donation and ask club members to sponsor his or her ride. For example, donate $1 per mile from each club member.
If the Bay Bridge bike lane is closed, the alternate terminus is Oakland’s Jack London Square. This route is a similar distance.
Either route, riders will experience Rotarian and cyclist camaraderie while supporting polio eradication, worldwide. Register for “Pedaling for Polio” inside the District Conference Registration Link below.
