25th Annual Bike for Breath
The 25th Annual Bike for Breath is scheduled for June 16-18. Proceeds benefit the American Lung Association of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties (ALASBVC). The Bike for Breath will take place in the Santa Ynez Valley and cover both flat terrain and rolling hills past regionally famous wineries and ranches. This is a go-at-your-own pace ride for cyclists of all levels of experience. Riders will have the choice of a one-day ride on Saturday, June 17 or a three-day ride, Friday through Sunday, June 16-18.
- Sign up for the 1 day ride on Sat. June 17 or ride all 3 days, Fri-Sun, June 16-18.
- Pedal at your own pace.
- Support stops every 10 miles.
- Fantastic food and music and a wonderful group of volunteers will guarantee a great weekend "get away."
Rest and food stops will be set up every 10 miles along the route with roving support vehicles to help you along. And each day the rider has a choice of a 30 or 50-mile route. During the weekend, entertainment will be provided.
The one-day ride will begin and end at Midland School in Los Olivos. The three-day ride will begin and end in Solvang, with two nights of camping at Midland School. The ALASBVC will transport all camping gear to the campsite for three day riders.
Teams made up of family members, friends or co-workers will ride on Saturday, June 17. Team awards will be presented to the team with the highest average in pledges and to the team with the most creative outfit at our Saturday evening festivities.
Participants will be required to collect pledges prior to the ride to help support the ALASBVC's local lung health programs (Check out About Us for details of the programs). A special fund raising discount applies to children, 14 and under. Each rider turning in their pledge minimum by June 1, 2006 will receive a Bike Trek T-shirt and water bottle. Additional prizes will also be awarded.
