The morning started off a little, well, a lot wet, but nearly 80 participants braved the questionable skies and along with over 20 volunteers at the Rotary Arboretum and along the ride route we made it a great morning.
Event chair Steve Lane said it best in a thank-you letter to the sponsors, “Our group is on a mission to improve the health of the citizens in our community. While few in our club ride daily, many ride recreationally. By creating an event that is accessible (both literally and figuratively) to all ages, we aim to introduce, or reintroduce, biking as a means for fun and secondarily as a means for enjoyable transportation.”
The fall ride is scheduled for Saturday, September, 13th starting in the Haskell Indian Nations Stadium Parking lot with events, bike maintenance stands, helmet fittings, and the ride will go along the Burroughs Creek Trail on Lawrence’s East side.
