YUMA, Ariz. – The 2nd Annual Mayors' Binational Bicycle Ride will be hosted by Yuma Mayor Douglas J. Nicholls in collaboration with the area-mayors of the 4FrontED region on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017.

The binational ride will start at the Yuma Civic Center (1440 W. Desert Hills Drive) at 8 a.m. in Yuma, with on-site registration and bib pick-up starting at 7 a.m. in the Civic Center's parking lot. 

Mayor Nicholls will give a brief welcoming  speech before the ride's kick-off at 8 a.m. From the Yuma Civic Center, mayors and participants will take off along Avenue A to 32nd Street, then will head westbound to Avenue B and  southbound toward Somerton. 

There will be approximately 5-6 stations where water will be provided for participants along the route, which is a total of 23.6 miles.

Mayors will cross the U.S.-Mexico border into San Luis, Rio Colorado, Sonora, where they will finish in "El Bosque," a City park. 

All riders must bring their own bicycle and helmet, and ride at their own risk. Participants are reminded to bring a passport if they plan to follow the ride across the border. Participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
