Community Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired invites you to the eighth Pedaling Paths to Independence on Saturday, February 20, 2016. A great ride on ANY bike–road, tandem, mountain, single speed, recumbent, fixed gear, cruiser, high wheel, hybrid, unicycle,
Bike Friday–the metric (65 miles with 1,300 feet of elevation gain) and quarter (25 miles with 300 feet of elevation gain) century routes begin and end at DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering-Linden (18847 East Front Street, Linden) and traverse the quiet rural roads of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Calaveras counties, through verdant pastures, orchards, and vineyards. (The metric century includes a portion of Stage Three of the 2011 Tour of California.)
Parking at Holy Cross Catholic Church is back!!! Definitely, though, parking in front of DeVinci’s, The Bean Plant Emporium, and The Primitive Barn is prohibited. Riders may check-in and ride any time between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.; everyone must be on the course by 10:00 a.m. Fees ($40.00 for the metric century, $35.00 for the quarter century) include pastoral scenery, maps and route sheets, re-ride technical support; radio communications provided by the Stockton-Delta Amateur Radio Club, fully stocked rest stops, Gatorade (metric century only) supplied by Farmington Circle K, and apple slices courtesy of McDonald’s of San Joaquin County. Of course, riders and guests will end the day with a scrumptious post ride meal catered by DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering–Linden and entertainment by Creative Sounds DJ and Sound Services. And, be sure to bring a few extra dollars to purchase raffle tickets–$1.00 each or six for $5.00–to win some very cool items.
Riders must be at least 16 years of age; each rider must sign a waiver at the event.
