On September 19th, Sacramento City Councilmember Jay Schenirer and West Sacramento Mayor Chris Cabaldon, will be kicking-off the 3rd Annual GearUp Cycle for Youth. Registration for four different rides are available, and interested participants are encouraged to visit Gear Up For Youth.
The charity ride will begin at the West Sacramento City Hall at 7 a.m. on the morning of the 19th and will conclude at Cesar Chavez Plaza in Downtown Sacramento at approximately 1 p.m. 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.
“The first and second years of the ride have been a resounding success, and we’re excited to have even more options for riders this year,” said Councilmember Schenirer. “We’re excited to have cycling enthusiasts from West Sacramento and Sacramento come out and join the fun, while helping to support two great organizations.”
GearUp was conceived by Councilmember Schenirer and West Sacramento Mayor Cabaldon as a way to support youth programs that target the under-served 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.
