Ryan Phua Memorial Kids' Ride
Sunday, June 26 at 10:30 a.m
Downtown Burlingame (at California and Lorton Avenues)
Come join the fun! The 13th Annual Ryan Phua Memorial Kids' Bike Ride, part of the 30th Annual Burlingame Criterium (the Criterium will be from 7 am - 3pm with street closures from 5 am - 4 pm), is the largest kids' bike ride in the US. Each year, close to 600 children ages twelve and under (including 250 four years and under) pedal to the finish with thunderous applause. Feeling proud of their "win," each child happily receives a medal, popsicle and goody bag.
While the event is free, children participants raise pledges for the Ryan Phua Memorial Fund, established through the LIVESTRONG Foundation to fund cancer-related programs in the Bay Area. Close to $700,000 has been raised so far. There will be free entertainment for the whole family after the ride. Top fundraisers receive gift certificates to a local toy store or a brand new bike. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the Burlingame Community for Education (BCE) Foundation. For more information: or view the event flyer:

On July 17, Pat Martini, painter of her imaginary friends the "Gnarly Old Guys," inspired by the grapevines on her family's Louis M. Martini vineyards, will describe some of the intricacies of winemaking, including the virtues of wine made from the much smaller yields of ancient vines.
