The South Coast Interfaith Council will conduct its fifth annual Interfaith Unity Bike-a-Thon, titled “Pedaling for Peace,” on Monday, July 4 at 9am, beginning at the corner of Bennett Street and Ocean Boulevard.
The goal of the Bike-a-Thon is to unite people of many different cultures and faiths to enjoy a day of social bicycling and food. Donations to the event help to support the South Coast Interfaith Council and its supporting organizations.
Prior to the ride, participants are asked to gather sponsorships from individuals willing to make a contribution to their organization/ faith community and the SCIC as a 50-50 donation.
The length of the ride, round-trip, is approximately 25 miles. However, bikers do not have to ride the entire distance. They can choose from slow, moderate, and fast-paced rides and from rides of varying distances. Any bicycle, tricycle or unicycle is welcome. Helmets are required for riders under 18 and are recommended for all participants.
