Why We Ride

Sonoma County’s homelessness rate per 1,000 residents remains one of the highest in the nation. Code Blue Sonoma brings support and awareness to the problems of homelessness during winter weather through our Winter Weather Project. Our fundraising event is the Code Blue Bike Ride each October, which helps us finance our efforts.

But much work remains. So in 2016 we started a campaign and rode our bicycles  across America. Yes, you read that right. We rode 4,469 miles and told others about our mission. Many didn’t want to ride across America but wanted to join the effort. On October 15, 2016 Code Blue Bicycle Event was held in Sonoma County with approximately 100 bicyclist who raised $8,500 which was invested to help homeless people in our community. We hope you will join us in our efforts to help the homeless — and join us for the Code Blue Bike Ride on October 14th, 2017!
