The Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition is proud to be part of the team organizing this year’s Code Blue Ride. Riders of all abilities are invited to join the October 14th, two-day, 100 mile bicycle ride event to raise awareness and funds benefiting homeless services in Sonoma County.
Sonoma County’s homeless population rate per 1,000 residents is among the highest in the nation. A significant number, 67%, are without any emergency or transitional shelter. This means that two out of three homeless people are living on the streets year round! Code Blue Sonoma brings support and awareness to the problems of homelessness during winter weather through the Winter Weather Project.
The ride presents three route options to choose from:
- Family Fun Ride: An 8-1/2-mile flat, leisurely, family-friendly cycling ride with route on designated bike path.
- Breezer: A mostly flat 18-mile course from Santa Rosa to Sebastopol and back.
- Challenger: An extended 55-mile spectacular scenic tour of Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Windsor, mostly flat with a few rollers.
