Davis Odd Fellows, The Bike Campaign and Bike City Theater Company were able to deliver seven new personalized tricycles to children with special needs thanks to their donation of $ 6,300 to Norcal Trykers from proceeds and sponsorships of the Zombie Bike Ride 2021.
In 2019, the ride funded the purchase of two tricycles, and in 2020, there were six. As the Zombie Bike Ride grows in popularity, sponsorship funds are raised every year. In 2019, 250 participated in the inaugural race, in 2020 there were 1,000 and in 2021, more than 2,000 people participated.
The Zombie Ride turned Davis into a theme park for Halloween, and residents and visitors could be found socially celebrating along the 12 mile Davis Bike Loop, in the community park’s skydiving area and at Davis Zombie Mash’s downtown afterparty at Davis Commons. Attendees enjoyed 10 zombie theater scenes staged by the Bike City Theater Company, watched Skydance Skydiving zombies fall from the sky, and enjoyed DJ Duke Jones and free hot apple cider from the Davis Food Co-op during the afterparty.
There was even an impromptu marching band called Noise Violation with 30 or more musicians at Sycamore Park, and some residents along the Davis Bike Loop hosted their own entertainment. View hundreds of photos and images of events at www.zombiebikeparade.com
