2016 March Bicycle Madness is About to Descend
Each year, Californians gather in massive numbers to take part in an event known as “March Bicycle Madness,” an annual fundraising event focused on providing underprivileged children with bicycle helmets for their safety. This year, the Madness descends on Davis, California from Tuesday, March 1st through Friday, April 1st.
Participants in the March Bicycle Madness event can join in the fun with two different registration types: a $15.00 standard registration with a goal of riding every day throughout the month of March, and a free 18 and under registration with a goal of hitting 50 miles in the month. The basic, $15.00 registration is restricted to individuals aged 19 and up, but allows riders to track their miles using a unique online tracker. The free admission for younger riders started as an effort to get kids more involved, so take advantage of the price break while you can!
Riders can also purchase a 2016 March Bicycle Madness jersey, as well as an optional $5.00 ticket to the March Bicycle Madness Awards Banquet. For non-riders, the event also accepts general monetary donations.
The awards banquet will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 24th at Sudwerks Restaurant banquet room. All tickets should be purchased before April 10th, as only a limited number of tickets will be available for sale on the day of the event. Awards will be presented to riders in a number of different categories, including male with most miles, female with most miles, oldest rider, youngest rider, and more.
The 2016 ride-fest will not only support a great cause, but will also be dedicated to the memory of long-time bicyclist and prolific participant Walt Little. Incredibly, Walt boasted an achievement of over 1,000 miles annually throughout the month of March, and even surpassed 1,500 miles on more than one occasion.
