The Imperial Valley Desert Museum was thrilled to be a part of the 12th annual Stagecoach Century Bike Ride, which has been a major event in Ocotillo for the last 12 years. But this year may be the last ride.
The 100-mile bike ride along S2 through Anza-Borrego Desert State Park has always been held on the third weekend in January. This year, the ride was on Jan. 16. For the last several years, the Imperial Valley Desert Museum was the non-profit of record for the event in both Imperial and San Diego Counties, and is the major volunteer organization working to see that the event in Ocotillo goes smoothly. This year, the Desert Museum provided 26 volunteers to help with the event — and three riders.
