What do YOU think Wednesdays: Bike race or running race?

Guess who's gonna go hang out with star fish and octopuses and shark embryos today? That would be yours truly here, and I am soooo excited! All this as a part of work, too. Shu-weet! :)
So here's something I would love to hear your guys' opinions about....
To bike, or to run: that is the question
See, there is a really awesome bike ride and a running race on the same day. I can't decide which one to sign up for! Here's the scoop Bicycle Ride: Gold Coast Ride for Literacy
My first bike "race"!
Flat and easy 30 miles
For a good cause
Chance to meet other cyclists
Support crew and aid stations
Traveling needed (about 40 minutes)
Will be by myself (James doesn't have a bike)
Will end up costing me more than the running race (but less than $30 more)
If I can't make a friend to ride with, I might get lonely (but its only 30 miles)
Onto the running race
Santa Barbara Chardonnay 10 Miler (website currently down for some odd reason) Here's a video from 2009
Route is pretty
Only ten miles!
Run with James
No traveling required
WINE TASTING post race
Cheaper than bike ride
A new race distance
Route surface not the best for running
same old, same old
So.... hmm... they both sound equally good to me. What would you choose? Please help me decide :) Thanks muchos muchos!
In terms of running, I am still taking a break. I am starting to feel and recognize muscular imbalances in my legs/hips that may be the culprit to my pain. Hopefully I can go see a PT or something, if not, work on stretching and strengthening my hips.
Have a splendid Humpday! Can you believe tomorrow is already April? 2010 is flying by. oh my.
