2011 Utah Rivalry Ride

Show some BYU pride this spring by joining Mayor John Curtis on the 2011 Utah Rivalry Ride. Here are the details from the official Facebook event:

“The Utes won last year’s rivalry game, so Provo Mayor John Curtis (because BYU lost) and Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker (because he’s nice) will bike approximately 50 miles from Provo to Salt Lake City, starting at the Provo City Center, 351 W. Center St., in Provo. There will be an opening ceremony at 10 a.m., with the bike ride starting at 10:30 a.m. It will end when all participants arrive at the Salt Lake City and County Building, 451 S. State St., in Salt Lake City.

The public is invited to participate in the opening ceremonies and/or the ride at no cost. Participating Cougar fans should wear jerseys, shirts, or other articles of clothing in the color blue to show support for BYU. For more information, including a map of the ride, visit www.utahrivalryride.com. Provo City can provide some limited transportation back to Provo after the ride, but participants are encouraged to provide their own. If you need transportation, or can help with transportation, email Helen Anderson at handerson@provo.utah.gov by April 28.

Both mayors want to use the ride to acknowledge the success of last fall’s BYU v. U of U food drive and to encourage the public to participate in the upcoming Stamp Out Hunger food drive on May 14. Cans of food may be donated before and after the ride at the Provo City Center and Salt Lake City and County Building.”

If you want to volunteer with transportation, contact Rachel George (801) 535-6040 or Rachel.George@slcgov.com.
