Dear fellow cyclists and supporters of Family Promise of San Gabriel Valley:

Our 3rd Annual Bike Tour takes place Saturday May 19, 2018! Let’s each find as many friends and coworkers as we can to be partners in supporting this outstanding organization. Set a high goal for raising funds and then go out and surpass it!

Choose your own mileage. You can ride as little as 8 miles, choose the 16-mile short round trip route, or if you are fully prepared, over 60 miles!

The Bike Tour is not a race and riders are expected to stay behind the designated lead rider. Our focus is to have a safe, enjoyable ride and raise a lot of money for a great organization. All riders must wear a bike helmet, regardless of age. Youth under the age of 18 must have a parent riding with them.

Here are more details about this year’s Tour:

Tour Description Riders should arrive at Church of the Good Shepherd (CGS), 400 W Duarte Road, Arcadia, by 7:30 in the morning. If you have a red shirt for riding, you will be more easily identified as one of our riders. Check in at the registration table and you will also be given a numbered bib that shows you are part of the group. We will gather for a group photo and sendoff around 8:15.

You have 3 choices for your ride (mileage is approximate):

Mini Tour (8 miles) – Riders will pick up the bike path after riding city streets for a few miles. Regular road traffic will mean that riders need to follow all regular traffic laws. The ride is level or downhill the entire way. After the 8-mile ride bikes and riders will be picked up and driven back to the church. Lunch will be provided.

Midi Tour (16 miles) – The first 8 miles is the same as the Mini Tour. After a short break with provided snacks, riders will ride back up to the church. Lunch will be served after returning back to CGS.

Maxi Tour (63 miles) – Experienced riders only. There will be limited sag support on this ride, so riders need to be in top shape and carry plenty of water and some snacks. There will be a couple of gathering stops to keep riders together. At the half way point there will be a snack stop with a chance to use a restroom, eat provided snacks, and refill water bottles. Lunch will be served after returning back to CGS.

Click here to proceed to registration. Please register before Saturday, May 12, so those buying snacks and serving lunch can properly prepare.

See you on the road,
