Ridin’ with a reason
Thursday, May 10 through Thursday, May 13, Crocker Park, $75
There’s no better reason to get on your bike and ride 300 miles than to be part of the annual NorCal AIDS Cycle. The four-day ride kicks off Thursday morning from Crocker Park, with riders heading to base camp in Auburn. Day two will see riders choose their own adventure: the milder Classic Route or the demanding Epic Route. No matter their choice, all these riders are badass. Each participant had to fund-raise $2,000, which goes to organizations like Sierra Foothills AIDS Foundation and Harm Reduction Services that address service gaps for marginalized communities. Registration is also open to weekend and single-day riders, and the ride will end with a warm crowd welcome at the Capitol. 211 O Street, https://norcalaidscycle.org.
