Join us for the 13th Annual Bike the Bridges & Brewfest at our new location: 1st Street Green Park in Benicia.
Bike the Bridges & Brewfest includes scenic ride options that pass over the Martinez and Carquinez Bridges. The fundraiser also features a Brewfest with multiple local breweries, food and entertainment, and a commemorative glass. Proceeds benefit Special Olympics Northern California to provide free year-round sports, inclusive education, health and leadership programs to children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The event happens rain or shine!
Fun for the whole family! In addition to Brewfest, open to those 21 years of age or older, we have some fun kid activities planned and all for free. Check them out!
Riders can select one of four distances, each boasting scenic views along the routes.
25-mile ride – $75
50K ride – $80
100K ride – $95
Century Ride – $100
All riders will receive a Bike the Bridges T-shirt, BBQ lunch and a commemorative pint glass (while supplies last). Riders must register by September 9, 2022, in order to guarantee your T-shirt size and pint glass. Riders 21 years of age and older will also receive a complimentary wristband to the Brewfest.
Go the Extra Mile
We encourage all participants to go the extra mile and raise additional funds for our athletes. Reach out to family, friends and colleagues and ask them to support your online fundraising efforts. Raise a minimum of $300 and you'll receive a long-sleeve dri-fit T-shirt. Raise a minimum of $400 and you'll earn a commemorative Bike the Bridges bike jersey. The incentive levels include your registration fee and are cumulative. So the more you raise, the more you earn and the more our athletes benefit!
There are a variety of sponsorships available which can be tailored to fit your needs and promote your company in the community. View Sponsorship Opportunities.
The Brewfest – The Public is Invited!
Enjoy live music and sample delicious brews from the best local breweries. Riders 21 years of age or older will receive a complimentary Brewfest wristband. The public can purchase a guest wristband in advance for $40 per person, which includes a commemorative pint glass (while supplies last). Walkup Brewfest wristbands are $45. A photo ID will be required before a wristband will be issued.
The impact that Special Olympics makes on the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities goes far beyond the playing field. Our sports, education, health and leadership programs positively impact their lives by instilling self-confidence which carries over into their everyday lives.
Our athletes participate in all our programs at no cost to them or their families. Special Olympics could not possibly offer the excellent opportunities to our athletes without the financial support of people in our local communities.
