The RAT Beach Bike Tour presents the Fourth Annual Charity Rat Ride on Saturday, September 21.
This is a bike tour, not a bike race. It’s strictly for fun and it’s a rare opportunity to explore the South Bay from a two wheeled perspective.
All riders will be admitted to the Lobster Festival for lunch and a huge party at the end of the ride. The event features non-stop music, mechanical bull riding, paddleboard lessons, kids area, cocktails, food, sun, sand and surf!
There are three different rides for all levels – the Metric Century (62 miles), the Metric Half Century (31 miles) and the Metric Quarter Century (15.5 miles).
This year’s event promises to be larger than ever with more diverse routes through the South Bay. All three rides take advantage of the splendid coastal location incorporating the bike paths along the Strand and Esplanade.
Entry fees go to several charities supported by the South Bay Rotary Club including the Scott Newman Center and the Pediatric Therapy Network. The entry fee includes a t-shirt, hat, refreshments, roving bike support, lunch and entry to the Lobster Festival.
The event will proceed rain or shine and helmets are required. For more information, visit the website at www.ratbeachbiketour.com.
