On Saturday, May 5th, Long Beach will be hosting one of the premiere bicycle events in the state when we welcome the annual Bike Fest and Tour of Long Beach. The day consists of fun for the whole family and a great way to promote America's most bike friendly city as well as our "Let's Move Long Beach" healthy city initiatives. All proceeds from the ride support the pediatric cancer research center at Miller Children's Hospital of Long Beach.
We have formed an official "Let's Move Long Beach" Team for the 31 mile Bike Tour race. Our team includes:
We want to thank Long Beach Yellow Cab who is sponsoring our team for $1000. They have been a great community partner and we are thankful for their support for Miller Children's Hospital and our citywide Let's Move campaign.
- City Prosecutor Doug Haubert
- City Auditor Laura Doud
- City Councilmember Gary DeLong
- City Councilmember Dee Andrews
- City Councilmemeber Steve Neal
- and Councilmember-Elect Al Austin
In addition, members of our families, staff, and community leaders will also be joining our team. We encourage you to participate in the ride, and join our team. The ride ends at a bike festival with live entertainment, a vendor fair, and much more cycling-focused fun.
Anyone interested in riding with our "Let's Move Long Beach" team can contact Lena Gonzalez in my office at 562 570 6919, or email her at Lena.Gonzalez@longbeach.gov.
