Community Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired invites you to the TENTH Pedaling Paths to Independence on Saturday, February 24, 2018. A great ride on ANY bike–road, tandem, mountain, single speed, recumbent, Bike Friday, fixed gear, cruiser, high wheel, hybrid, unicycle–the metric (65 miles with 1,400 feet of elevation gain) and quarter (25 miles with 300 feet of elevation gain) century routes begin and end at DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering Linden (18847 East Front Street, Linden - MAP IT) and traverse the quiet rural roads of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Calaveras counties, through verdant pastures, orchards, and vineyards.
Riders may check in and ride any time between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.; everyone must be on the course by 10:00 a.m. Fees paid prior to the event ($45.00 for the metric century, $40.00 for the quarter century) include pastoral scenery, maps and route sheets, pre-ride technical support by Performance Bicycle Shop #55, radio communications provided by the Stockton-Delta Amateur Radio Club, and fully stocked rest stops. Of course, riders and guests will end the day with a scrumptious post ride meal catered by DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering–Linden and entertainment by Creative Sounds DJ and Sound Services. PhotoCrazy, Inc. will capture images of riders on the road, available for purchase at the event. Remember the time you pass the camera—and smile!
