Baja charity bike ride delayed, shortened -

TIJUANA — Organizers of a 1,000-mile, 16-day bike ride originally planned for next month down the Baja California peninsula have shortened their course and delayed the event until March.

The Baja Love Ride, promoted as a fundraiser for children's charities, is now scheduled from March 22nd to March 26th. The new route is 217 miles long, said John Pack, one of the organizers. The plan now is to start off from Monumental Plaza in Playas de Tijuana, pass through the Baja California communities of Rosarito Beach, La Mision, Ojos Negros and the Valle de La Trinidad, and end up up in San Felipe in time for the port’s Blues & Arts Fiesta.

Pack said one of the main reasons for the change in plans is the condition of the roads south of San Felipe, which has made it impossible for buses and other large event vehicles to get through. “We’ll just do a pre-run and next year will be the entire route,” Pack said.

The event is conceived as a fundraiser for orphanages and other children’s organization on the route. Promoters are also hoping that the event will deliver the message that traveling to Baja California can be safe.
