Stone Soup Cafe will be catering lunch so please stay and get something to eat after you ride.  Also, we’ll have plenty of liquid refreshments around to keep you properly hydrated.

Some Reminders:

Our goals are for each rider to raise $150 and each team to raise $750.  Of course, these are optional targets and we appreciate whatever funds you can raise.

Both rides are plenty scenic and mostly stay off main arteries, but there will be some exceptions so keep your eyes on the road as there will be potholes and other potential road obstacles to to be aware of.  Stay alert.  Also please ride single file.

Everyone riding must wear a helmet.  This is for your own protection.  Riders will not be able to start the ride without a helmet.

One of our sponsors, Sean at Speed and Sprockets will be set up to take care after minor bike adjustments.  They also carry parts, tires, or other bike accessories.
