The Friends of the Trails held their 4th Annual Bicycle Fun’d Ride and Walk this past August. The ride portion encompassed four different routes from 5-miles to 62-miles for riders to choose from.
On each of the routes riders drew five cards to try and get the best poker hand of the day! When everyone returned from their rides or walk we concluded the event with a spaghetti lunch. During the lunch we raffled off some prizes, a family fun pack, and gave away prizes for the top poker hands.
The event in total had around 160 participants with 140 cyclists participating. The event was a great success. The Friends of the Trails would once again like to thank everyone who volunteered their time to help us with the event. We would also like to thank the many community sponsors who continue to show us support.
Next year we will be moving locations to Bob Mays Park to start the ride on August 21st, 2010. We will be aiming the 5 mile route to a more family friendly style with minimal to no traffic conflicts, so younger riders can join us for the day. There will also be a trivia component next year so that you can earn more cards at the poker stops for your knowledge about the Friends of the Trails. We want to thank all of the participants for their support and feedback, so that each year we can help make the event even more successful!
