RIDE FOR A REASON is an annual bike ride from Oakland to the State Capitol to support public education and raise essential funds for our local schools. Over 150 students, teachers, parents and community members pedaled to Sacramento last year to protest the massive cuts in funding for education. We raised over $60K, and helped secure the passage of Proposition 30. But after years of disinvestment, we must show Sacramento that Prop 30 is only the beginning, and more than ever, or schools need real funding and better resources!
SUPPORT Ride for A reason on Saturday, May 11th, 2013! Register to ride or make a pledge and help us raise $80K this year! Every dollar is shared equally by four Oakland public schools: Emerson Elementary, Claremont Middle, Oakland Technical High, and Oakland International High School. With your support, we can make California’s public schools the best in the nation!
Urban, local wine tasting on two wheels! Get on a bike and discover the return to urban wine making that’s happening in the East Bay! EBWBT is a fun, green way to meet some talented winemakers who crush, blend and age their wines in local, urban warehouses. Your tour will conveniently start near Jack London Square, and visit 3 to 4 small production wineries that truly embody the passion, skills and art of the winemaker. EBWBT can provide you with comfortable bikes and helmets, and if you find a few bottles you love, your experienced ride leader will even transport them for you on their trusty cargo bike. You’ll also enjoy a delicious picnic lunch, a comfortable pace and the beautiful sights along the way.
Diablo Magazine rated East bay winery bike tours one of the top ten “Things You Gotta Do This Summer". Take to the streets on two wheels to explore the East Bay’s ever-expanding collection of urban wineries, and meet the vintners behind the bottles at each stop. WE'LL BE GIVING AWAY A FREE WINERY BIKE TOUR to some lucky attendee, and offering a 20% discount on tour bookings!
