For Immediate Release:
Record Number of Cyclists Expected for the San Diego Century Bicycle Tour
MARCH 4TH, 2014
May 31 event already 2/3 full!
Entries for the eighth annual San Diego Century Bicycle Tour, the classic San Diego county cycling event with food & fitness expo set for Saturday, May 31 in Encinitas, are moving along at a record clip. As of 3/4/14 more than 1,000 cyclists have registered for the event.
“The response keeps growing,” said event organizer Jim Curl of Event Media, Inc. “Last year was a great event with nearly 1500 riders on the course. We want to continue to provide a great experience for all our participants, so we will keep the course capacity at 1,500 bike riders. This means we will have to plan for an early sell-out of registrations. If you’re thinking about riding in 2014 be sure to register soon!”
“The San Diego Century is a wonderful San Diego tradition and community cycling event that caters to cyclists of all ages and abilities.” said Curl. “The rides showcase the classic hills and scenery in North County San Diego, which should be nice and green after this rain. The local SAG support along the route combined with the post-ride expo and food trucks at MiraCosta College really make this annual event a treat for any cyclist.”
Entries for the 2014 event will be capped at 1,500. To secure your place among the 500 remaining spots, register today by visiting the event website: www.sdcentury.com .
About the San Diego Century Bicycle Tour
The San Diego Century Bicycle Tour (Saturday, May 31, 2014), consists of a choice of 25, 37, 66 and 103-mile rides that start and finish at MiraCosta College in Encinitas. The three longer cycling courses include classic and challenging routes that tour the beautiful Lake Hodges, climb scenic hills on the way to Poway and Ramona and return to the San Elijo lagoon through picturesque Rancho Santa Fe. The shorter ride features a new course in 2014 with an out and back inland route to Tri-City Wellness Center in Carlsbad. All the rides are followed by finish line festivities at MiraCosta College, including cuisine from local food trucks, refreshments and a sports and fitness expo. Proceeds from the ride support the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition – www.sdcbc.org — a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to making bicycling better in greater San Diego.
