Join us for the Wine Country Bike Trek
June 19-21, 2020
CHOOSE FROM A ONE, TWO OR THREE-DAY RIDE
The Wine Country Bike Trek is a unique and well-established cycling event that takes place in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley wine country and benefits People Helping People. Each day, riders choose from a 30- or 50-mile ride. Volunteers will greet you every ten miles with fully catered rest stops. Rather volunteer than ride? Check out all the great volunteer opportunities here.
The spirit of the Wine Country Bike Trek is community, family, and friends. We guarantee you’ll walk away with new friends and fantastic memories of your weekend in the Santa Ynez Valley. Best of all, the proceeds from the Bike Trek make a difference in the lives of those in need.
Fundraising is not required to participate, however we highly encourage both riders and volunteers to raise funds. You’ll receive a fundraising page that can be customized and shared with your friends and family via email or on your social media. We’ll say thanks for your fundraising efforts with a variety of great prizes.
Entry fees and donations raised from the Wine Country Bike Trek help support People Helping People’s emergency and basic needs programs, including our Food Program, which provides groceries to over 1,300 people bi-weekly; health care access for adults and children that are underinsured and uninsured; and programs such as mentoring and counseling for children and teens.
On Sunday, the route will end with a BBQ lunch at River View Park in Buellton.
Testimonials from the Wine Country Bike Trek
“I rode with my wife Carolyn and friends, Richard and Christine from Chicago. The rides were well laid out and well marked. They were tough but fair. My friends had such a good time riding, enjoying dinner and listening to the music each evening that they are planning on returning next year.” – Mike Balaban, a member of PHP’s Board of Directors and avid cyclist, rode 50 miles on all three days.
