Approximately 100 bicyclists rode this year’s Code Blue Bicycle Event raising funds and awareness for support and services for the approximate 3,000 homeless people in our Sonoma County community. This event was supported and sponsored by the County of Sonoma, Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, Catholic Charities, St. Joseph Hospital, NorCal Bike Sport, Beeline Bikes, volunteers and other groups.
SCBC would like to give a special shout out to Paula Shimizu, Don Keylon and Ed Buonaccorsi, who this past summer, rode their bicycle across the United States on an 81-day, 4,469 mile adventure to help increase funds and awareness of homelessness in our community! Not everyone can experience, or wants to experience, riding their bicycles across America. But many did decide to support this critically important effort by joining the local Code Blue Bicycle Ride on October 15th, 2016. If you missed the Code Blue Sonoma Bicycle Event this year, please join us next year on October 14th, 2017.
