Saturday Bike-a-thon for Sister City!

The Sister City Annual Bike-a-Thon is happening this coming Saturday, April 5. The 26-mile ride begins and ends at the Buena Vista Library. Registration begins at 6:45 AM, and the ride will begin at 7:30 AM. All BSCC members, Burbank community members, friends, family, and members of the cycling community are welcome to participate!

The fee is $30 per rider (cash or check only, payable at the event), and everyone is also welcome to make pledges/donations to offset the cost of our student exchange programs with our sister cities Ota, Japan and Incheon, Korea; to support the awarding of scholarships for the exchange programs; and to help fund other projects such as the purchase of mosquito nets for families in our sister city of Gaborone, Botswana.

Go to http://www.burbanksistercity.org/Bike-a-thon.html to download information and registration forms for the Bike-a-Thon, including a route sheet, a riders' checklist, and a pledge/sponsor form. And if you are a rider, don't forget to fill out and bring your Rider Registration and Hold Harmless forms too! (And a bike...and a helmet!)

If you have questions, please call the Burbank Public Library Administrative Office at 818-238-5551.
