Mustache Ride Gears Up for 5th Year of Fun in Support of Food Bank’s Backpack Program

The 5th annual Mustache Ride is set for July 29th, and you can still join in the fun while supporting a great cause!

The Mustache Ride is a bicycle bar crawl with stops at the following local bars: 1867 Bar, Yowie’s Sports Bar, Single Barrel, and the Beacon Lounge. The event will conclude with a party at Embassy Suites, featuring live music by AM/FM. All funds raised go towards the Food Bank of Lincoln’s Backpack Program, which sends home over 13,000 care packages every month with kids who may not have enough food to eat over the weekend. It costs $250 for one student for the school year, and last year, this fundraiser alone raised $13,816 for the program, feeding 55 kids in our community! Last year over 200 people participated, and this year is expected to top that, so there will be two groups led by the Group Therapy Bike Tours trolley and Conference bikes.

Registration for participants and sponsorship opportunities for local businesses/organizations are still available, and donations are welcome through the month of August. You must be registered to participate. To find out more, visit the “Mustache Riders” Facebook page or contact Leslie Lipert at (402) 416-0488 / leslie@generalfiresafety.com.
