This year, Puerto Rico 360, Inc. is assigning funds raised from the San Juan City Bike Tour to the American Cancer Society of Puerto Rico. Proceeds from this year's event will go to the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge as part of our continued effort and commitment. When completed, this project will be a 33 bedroom, short-term residential facility designed to offer housing and support free of charge to any pediatric or adult cancer patient who travels to the San Juan area for treatment.
The Event - a Vuelta Puerto Rico Prologue?
Led by close to a dozen Mujer Brava Road Captain female cyclists, this 40-50 mile event is the unofficial first day of La Vuelta Puerto Rico, and is a great way to see our Capital City! It will highlight some of the most intriguing neighborhoods in the metropolitan area and is excellent for you to tune up your bike and warm up your legs. The ride starts at the Ballajá Quarters in Old San Juan right in front of the El Morro Fort.
The tour showcases the diversity of our Capital City as it passes through the romantic cobblestone streets in the old city, the financial district of Hato Rey, the pristine beaches of Ocean Park and the historic architecture throughout San Juan.
