Carquinez Century Ride - May 9

Apr 12, 2015 10:44AM, Published by Jennifer Neys, Categories: Sports+Recreation




Join the Martinez Rotary, Saturday May 9, for a wonderful day of bike riding along both sides of the scenic Carquinez Strait. Choose a challenging 100K ride or an easier 40K ride. Both rides begin and end at Martinez Waterfront Park (in the parking lot next to the bocce courts), travel across the Benicia and Carquinez bridges, and include

Martinez, Crockett, Vallejo and Benicia. The 100K ride also includes a ride around the scenic San Pablo Dam.

Ticket prices include an event t-shirt, plenty of beverages and snacks along the route, mobile aid stations, and a delicious gourmet boxed lunch provided upon your return. Additional food, beverages and other cool items will be available for sale at the finish line. The after-party will be open to the public; family and friends are welcome to celebrate your accomplishment!

This important community event is a fundraiser for the Martinez Rotary Foundation. Proceeds will go directly to projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. Locally, funds raised will provide scholarships for students in Martinez schools, and donations to local support services including Shelter, Inc, The Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano, Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa, Boys & Girls Club of Martinez, and many other projects which change lives and build a stronger unified community.

On a national and global level, funds will be donated to Rotary projects that work to eradicate polio, reduce poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact. For more information visit www.martinezrotary.org.
