5th annual Mayors’ Binational Bike Ride held

The event brought together elected officials and community leaders from across the Desert Southwest for a bike ride spanning over 25 miles - 13 On Your Side's Luis Lopez reports

YUMA Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - On October 23, local leaders and citizens gathered at the Yuma Civic Center, all of whom had their bikes with them.

The 5th Annual Binational Mayors' Bike Ride took place on Saturday.

Mayors and elected officials from across the Desert Southwest were all a part of it.

The ride started at the Yuma Civic Center and finished all the way in San Luis, Mexico. While that may sound like quite a trip to take via bicycle, it wasn’t a straight shot.

There were stops every five to ten miles, and everyone rode at a leisurely pace.

Yuma mayor, Douglas Nicholls, says that the event is a great way to show how the different leaders always work together.

“Well it’s something that I get to experience every day, because I work with all these leaders all the time , but not everybody else gets to see how well connected all the communities are and how much we work together so it means a lot that we can demonstrate that in an event like today,” Nicholls said.
