Bike ride and underwear drive event supports homeless students
Looking to bike for a good cause? Head out to Hagan Park in Rancho Cordova on Saturday and take part in the Underwear Bike Ride – getting exercise and donating underwear to homeless students.
“This is a great way to get some exercise, connect with locals and enjoy the last day of our underwear drive for homeless students,” event spokesman Ryan Lundquist wrote in an email.
The family-friendly event has the option of two rides: 6-mile round-trip ride and a 26-mile round-trip ride.
Riders are asked to bring underwear for students in kindergarten to 12th grade in appropriate styles, and tax-deductible donations are also welcome.
The ride is hosted by Project 680, a grassroots volunteer effort to support homeless students in the Folsom Cordova Unified School District in practical ways.
Riders should meet at 9 a.m. Saturday at 2197 Chase Drive in Rancho Cordova.
