VACAVILLE — People can sign up to ride in the third annual Ride to Defeat Diabetes on Oct. 5 and raise money for the NorthBay Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology.

They can choose among a 60-mile ride, a 25-mile ride and a 10-mile ride. All begin at NorthBay VacaValley Hospital, 1000 Nut Tree Road.

The 60-mile bike ride starts at 7:30 a.m. Riders will take rural roads to the English Hills north of Vacaville, Pleasants Valley Road to Putah Creek, reach the half-way mark at Winters and return to Vacaville, passing through Lagoon Valley.

The 25-mile ride starts at 9 a.m. Riders will go down Nut Tree Road, then head out the English Hills and return to Vacaville.

The 10-mile ride starts at 10 a.m. and is called the Alamo Creek Family Kids Ride. Riders will bike east of Elmira and back. Members of the Monticello Cycling Club will serve as escorts.

Go to www.northbay.org/r2d2 to see maps of the routes and to register. Registered riders get T-shirts, a raffle ticket, lunch and refreshments, an event press release said.

Organizers are also looking for volunteers to help out on the day of the event. People can sign up on the event website listed above.

“Few people realize that Solano County leads the state with the highest number of diagnosed diabetes patients at 9.7 percent,” said Deborah Murray of the NorthBay Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology on the event website.

The ride is an opportunity to emphasize the value of a good diet and exercise and raise money for local education projects related to diabetes, she said.
