The campaign kicks off in November and runs through March of next year. Our first delivery date is Monday December 23, 2013. You are invited to accompany us. Be at BEMCC office at 8:30 a.m. at 642 Third Avenue Suite I, Chula Vista, CA 91910. We will return around 4:00 p.m. Call (619) 425-5080 to make room for you if you are planning to accompany us.

Every year many children and elderly people die due to extreme weather cold temperatures. These families live in cardboard homes, or homes made of aluminum with leaky roofs. These are poor families who cannot afford to buy warm clothing and blankets. Your donation of a warm blanket could save a life.

The Rosarito Bike Ride attracts cyclists from all around the world. The race is open to all ages and experience levels.

The Rosarito to Ensenada Bike Ride starts in Rosarito around the Rosarito Beach Hotel area and travels along the free road known as Mexico Highway 1 to Ensenada. It takes you on a 50 mile journey along the Pacific Coast of Baja and inland through rural countryside. There are many stops along the way if you get tired, and there is always a huge party at the finish line in Ensenada.

The Rosarito Ensenada Bike Ride Elite

Start is for serious riders and are interested in placing in the Rosarito Ensenada Bike Ride, are offered an “Elite Start”. The elite start allows experienced bikers that average at least 17 mph over the course of the event and finishing in less than 3 hours, an opportunity to pay a little extra to start in front of the pack.

The Elite start makes the event safer and more enjoyable for everyone. Top riders have finished this event in under 2 hours.

Rosarito Bike Ride for Everyone Else

The Rosarito Ensenada Bike Ride attracts people from all around the world. There are colorful costumes and funny bikes that people create.

Along the entire course there are bars and places filled with riders stopping to have a few beers before mounting back on their bikes. The Rosarito to Ensenada Bike Ride is a 50 mile party. The race is pretty easy, however it is long. The only hard part is a 2 mile hill called “El Tigre”. This is when you wish you did not drink all those beers. El Tigre starts at sea level and climbs over 800 feet in just over 2 miles. This hill separates the strong from the weak. All along the sides you will see bikers walking, especially the riders that choose to do this event on their beach cruises. Once you get to the top you can relax, because the ride is mostly downhill all the way into Ensenada.
