On September 20th, Sacramento City Vice‐Mayor Jay Schenirer and West Sacramento Mayor Chris Cabaldon will be kicking‐off the 2nd Annual GearUp Cycle for Youth. Registration for a 40 mile ride or a newly‐added metric century (65‐mile) ride option are now available, and interested participants are encouraged to register at: www.gearupforyouth.org.
The charity ride will begin at the West Sacramento City Hall at 7:00 AM on the morning of the 20th. and will conclude at Cesar Chavez Plaza in Downtown Sacramento at approximately 1:00 PM. Riders will enjoy a scenic course down into the Delta passing by notable regional landmarks such as Dave’s Pumpkin Patch and the Old Sugar Mill, ending with a lunch‐time celebration with gourmet food trucks, a local‐area band and a beer garden in Cesar Chavez Plaza.
“Last year’s inaugural GearUp ride was a resounding success; we’re excited to add a metric century option to the ride,” said Vice Mayor Schenirer. “We’re hoping that even more cycling enthusiasts in West Sacramento and Sacramento will come out and join the fun while supporting a great cause.”
GearUp was conceived by Mayor Cabaldon and Vice‐Mayor Schenirer as a way to support youth programs that target the underserved children in the cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento. All proceeds from the GearUp Cycle for Youth will benefit WayUp Sacramento, a wraparound youth support network and FutureReady: The Mayor’s Trust for Youth charity.
