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 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.
