Looking for a fun and healthy activity to do with friends and family? Grab a bike, a group of your best buddies, and sign up to ride in NorthBay Healthcare’s 3rd Annual Ride to Defeat Diabetes, set for Sunday, Oct. 5. Enjoy family-friendly camaraderie while raising awareness of Solano County’s diabetes crisis. Funds raised during the event will benefit the NorthBay Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology.
R2D2 offers three separate rides: an easy 10-mile ride to the unincorporated area of Elmira, and 25-mile and 60-mile rides for more serious cyclists. All will start from NorthBay VacaValley Hospital, 1000 Nut Tree Road in Vacaville.
Anyone wishing to volunteer on the day of the event is encouraged
to sign up at the R2D2 website at NorthBay.org/r2d2.
The 60-mile ride departs at 7:30 a.m., the 25-mile ride at 9 a.m., and the 10-mile ride will depart at 10 a.m. The 10-mile ride is free for children age 12 and under, 13 and up will register for $10. There is a $25 registration fee for the 25-mile ride, and the 60-mile ride registration fee is $35. T-shirts, a raffle ticket, lunch and refreshments will be provided for registered riders.
