English: Biking to the Blues!


The Baja Love Ride and 5th Annual International Blues and Arts Fiesta team up for the children of Baja.

San Felipe, Baja California, February 11, 2011 -  The Baja Love Ride “Ride for a Cause” charity bike ride will kick off in Rosarito Beach March 22 and wind 225 miles to beautiful San Felipe just in time for the kick off of the 5th Annual International Blues and Arts Fiesta. 

All money raised from the event will go to children’s charities in the communities the riders pass through. For riders who find the 225 ride too much to handle, you can still participate by registering for the 5-7 mile “Good Start Rides” that will be held at the start of the Rosarito, and Ensenada legs and in San Felipe for the final 7 miles to the finish line.  You can also register for a single day “Bike and Camp”, which includes meals and overnight camping. The main event, the 225 mile ride, cost $200 for registration, the “Bike and Camp Ride” will cost $45 and the “Good Start Ride” will cost $25 for participants. All riders will receive a FREE ticket to the 5th Annual San Felipe International Blues and Arts Fiesta. 

The Blues and Arts Fiesta, which is billed as an event that is “Changing Lives through Music and Art”, should help to keep participants of the Baja Love Ride motivated as they will be biking to the blues. March 26, 2011 will kick off the outdoor concert and extravaganza which also benefits Baja children. The wildly successful event brings folks from across the globe to the Sea of Cortez to hear some of the best blues music ever created by some of the world’s most renowned artists and groups. Because of the amount of money raised for charity by the Blues and Arts Fiesta, the organizers can attest that it truly is “Changing Lives through Music and Art.” The proceeds from both events will directly help provide a better future for the chiildren throughout the peninsula. 

The returning musical guests are crowd favorites, like guitar legend Javier Batiz, blues roots gurus Chet & The Committee, the always fabulous Queen of Steam, Michele Lundeen, and the vastly entertaining Ruta 69 of Ensenada. New musical acts include the charismatic Afro-Cuban fusion group Libre, popular power band Mosk Trio, great eclectic blues rockers Deja Blues, and of course our inimitable local musical hosts, the super talented Agave Blues. 

The San Felipe Lions Club has chosen to give free tickets to riders in the Baja Love Ride because they see these two events as a grand opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of the children of Baja. The San Felipe Lions Club, chartered in 2007, is the third largest in Mexico. They host the Blues and Arts Fiesta and they have seen it grow year after year. The fiesta is also promoted by the Baja Good Life Club, the promoters of the Baja Love Ride. The Baja Good Life Club is a travel and discount club that encompasses all of Baja. Membership comes with perks such as a monthly magazine, member card good for discounts on Mexican auto insurance, and discounts on events, dining, lodging and other activities.
