Mayor Curtis to Cycle from Provo to Salt Lake in Rivalry Ride

University of Nevada 27, Brigham Young University 13 (12)

BYU’s defeat last week means one thing for Provo’s Mayor John Curtis: he’ll be bicycling from Provo to Salt Lake as a part of the annual Rivalry Ride tradition. Historically, the mayor from the defeated city must ride from his own city hall to the winning team’s city hall.

This year’s ride will be on May 13, 2011, in warmer spring-time conditions. Take a look at or ABC 4 for more information.

The Rivalry Ride goes hand-in-hand with the annual food drive competition, in which both cities compete to see who can donate the most food for charity.

  1. Does anyone know if the ride is open to the public? It would be awesome for us all to ride down there in support of the Mayor.
