The Tenth Anniversary River Ride was our largest ride to date! We had well over 2,000 participants. We made a promise that this would be the best River Ride ever and it more than lived up to that promise. With the addition of many new wonderful sponsors and the returning support of our longtime supporters, LACBC was able to reach out to many more families. More than triple the numbers of young riders joined us this year. We are definitely building the next generation of cyclists through our kids ride.

The adults had fun too. This year the pit stops were terrific with lots of snacks to choose from. The 70 and 100 milers enjoyed homemade empenadas and the 50 milers got sandwiches. We also added a new pit stop at Hollenbeck park in Boyle Heights. All the pit stops saw an increase in volunteers and information.

After the ride, participants enjoyed  great live music from returning band Stone Cold Blues and new musical acts, The Manic Theatricals and the fantastic, LA River Swim Team. The food was excellent, the beer flowed and the Great Chiweenie frolicked!

We were also very proud to have special 10th Anniversary jerseys for sale and every rider received a free T-shirt.

Most of all thank you to all the volunteers who dedicated a lot of time and energy to help make this the best River Ride ever.  We couldn’t have done it without them.

If you missed it, you missed out! Be sure to join us for next year’s River Ride as it is always our goal to make the ride better than the one before. It will be a tall order trying to top this year’s!
