The 1st Annual Milpitas Family Bike Ride kicked off on Saturday, September 20, 2014. It was organized by the City of Milpitas and the Milpitas Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Commission. A Special Thank You to our generous sponsors: Donut Basket, Black Bear Diner, Grocery Outlet, Ocean Market and Sports Basement.
The morning started at 8am at Gill Park in Milpitas where volunteers from the Milpitas High School Leo Club volunteered registering the bike riders, decorating the starting line with balloons and helping with Traffic at the intersections. A Big Thank You to the Milpitas High School Leos for helping out.
Milpitas Mayor Jose Esteves welcomed the bicycle riders as well as Lois, the low price ambassador from Grocery Outlet. We also received a Bicycle Escort from Officer R. Lopez. The group left the starting point at 9:15 in the morning.
The halfway point was at Augustine Park where there were refreshments, energy bars, crackers and the raffle ticket giveaway. The group made their way back to the start/finish line where we raffled off gift cards from Black Bear Diner, Sports Basement gift cards and water bottles. Hope to see everyone again next year.
