The Rosarito-Enesenada 50-Mile Fun Bike Ride will begin its 31st year this Saturday with the first of two yearly events.


"Five-thousand cyclists are expected to ride on April 17," said San Diego event promoter Gary Foster. "The event had 4,000 last September and only 3,000 one year ago in April, so Baja tourism is definitely increasing."


Participants came from throughout the world but mainly the United States and Mexico . Following a course along the coast and through rural countryside, the ride is geared both for serious competitors and those who take a more relaxed approach.


 "This is one of the signature events for our region and attracts a great group of people," said Rosarito Beach Mayor Hugo Torres. "We're pleased to have the event, the riders, their friends and family visit us twice each year."


Further information, entry fees and registration is available at Participants also can register the day of the event.


Sometimes called a "party on wheels," the Rosarito-Ensenada  50-Mile Fun Bike Ride has attracted hundreds of thousand of participants since its start in 1979. The next ride will be this September.


The ride always begins near the front entrance of the Rosarito Beach Hotel and concludes with a Finish Line Fiesta, which this year will be at the Corona Hotel in Ensenada. It will feature food, drinks and music.


"Lots of people are taking the round-trip bus ride from San Diego that's available from the event organizers for $89," Foster said, "That's a great option for people who don't want to drive."
