16-day bike ride to promote Baja California charities

A 1,000-mile bike ride next month between Rosarito Beach and Cabo San Lucas is being promoted as a fundraiser for children's charities along the way. Organizers are counting on another benefit: delivering the message that traveling to Baja California can be safe.
“We’re trying to improve the perception of Baja,” said Bill Spradlin, one of two U.S. citizens living in San Felipe who are organizing the ride.
The 16-day Baja Love Ride is scheduled from Feb. 14 to March 1. The event’s promoters say participants can sign up for a five-mile stretch, a day-long ride or the entire journey.
