Meals for Wheels Ride

If you're not up for the Peninsula ride this Saturday, it's not too late to register for the Wheels for Meals Ride in Livermore. With 15, 35 and 67.5 mile options, there's something for everyone (except the crazy Brevet riders). Should be a fun day out around the vineyards of Livermore.

Alameda County Meals on Wheels is hosting its inaugural Wheels for Meals ride October 17, 2009 through the beautiful Livermore Valley. We have three routes to choose from: a 15 mile ride for families and riders who appreciate a gentle bike ride through vineyards and bike paths; a 35 mile ride through vineyards and rolling farm country for riders who want to push themselves a bit more; and a strenuous 67.5 mile ride with lots of climbing and fast descents for experienced riders looking for a challenging end-of-season ride.

Entry fee includes: a T-shirt, a post-ride bbq lunch, route maps, fun rest stops with food and beverages staffed by friendly volunteers, good humor, first aid supplies, radio and SAG support, and a few good coaches riding along with you for encouragement and safety.

Proceeds from this event will support the six Meals on Wheels programs in Alameda County, providing warm, home delivered meals to homebound seniors every day. However, each delivery brings more than a nutritious meal. The caring check-in reassures seniors and their families that someone will knock on the door every day, and ensure that the senior is living safely at home, where they want to be.

According the website, online registration will close on 12:00 PM (Noon) Thursday, October 15th, so today, however they will accept day of registration at the start/finish line, so don't let that stop you.

Several OYJers are already signed up so you'll have good company on the road.


Chico Wildflower Century

Registration is now open for the 2010 Chico Wildflower Century. If you want to do this ride, better sign up. It sells out fast.

From the Chico Velo website:

The 2009 Wildflower Century

The Wildflower has grown steadily over the years to 4,000 participants. 3,150 ride the hills (Mildflower 65 and Wildflower 100), 750 ride the Flatflowers and 100 young cyclists ride the Childflower 15 on the bike path to Durham. The rides satisfy the three biggest desires of century riders - the challenge, the scenery and the food. We combine tough climbs in the lush and fertile springtime with plenty of fresh fruits, fresh baked goodies (like streusel-date bars, banana-walnut bread, raspberry granola bars and raisin-nut energy bars) and a lunch spread that makes other century organizers scratch their heads. The rides have always included a dinner at the finish.

Sounds like a great ride.
