24 Hour ‘Boat Cruise seeking teams

The 24 Hour 'Boat Cruise is seeking teams for the fundraising event that will commence in September.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A spectacle of costume-wearing cyclists cruised through Steamboat Springs during the inaugural 24-hour Boat Cruise in 2017.

On Friday, Sept. 21, teams of all themes will once again take off on bike throughout town starting at 4 p.m. and continuing until 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22.

The 10.3-mile course involves a mix of paved bike paths, dirt and gravel paths as well as some city roads.

All ages are welcome to participate in this family event that entails teams of no less than two people and no more than six. Kids 10 and younger do not count toward the six-person limit.

Last year, $11,000 was raised through grassroots efforts to help fund two years of the “Listo Para Kinder” program for the local nonprofit Integrated Community.

The fundraiser will again benefit Integrated Community with funds raised going to support the expansion of Integrated Community’s other early childhood education programs such as “Bright By Three” and “Madres Enseñando.”

After the race, Integrated Community, 64 Spruce St., will host a block party with food, music, drinks, soccer games and prizes.

The event is capped at 16 teams. For a list of rules and to register, visit ciiccolorado.org/24-hour-boat-cruise.
