Jon and Ken’s Most Excellent Adventure is a charity bike ride supporting Santa Cruz community projects & youth athletics. In its 16th year, the Rotary Club of Santa Cruz Sunrise will begin the breathtaking three day ride from Healdsburg to Santa Cruz on Oct 3rd.
The pack is made of men and women, both Rotarians and non-Rotarians who are committed to raising funds for Santa Cruz community programs. While this isn’t a race, the course can be very challenging, so cycling experience enhances the ride. Riders will cover 200 miles in 3 days; Day 1 from Healdsburg to Bodega Bay, Day 2 from Bodega Bay to Pacifica, Day 3 bringing us home to Santa Cruz.
Each rider is responsible for covering the cost of the ride ($350), and pledges to raise a minimum of $500 for Santa Cruz community programs.
The ride has raised over $500,000 for the Santa Cruz Community. The first 10 years helped build the Rotary Track and Field at Santa Cruz High. Since completing that project, money raised has gone to numerous local charities.
This year money raised will support the following organizations:
• Shelterbox USA
• Second Harvest Food Bank
• Santa Cruz Composite Youth Bike Team
• Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Charities and Grants Program
• The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Exploration Center Rotary Classroom

Opportunities for sponsorship are available for people and organizations; riding not required.
