This year’s RIDE is taking place on October 5. We are looking for riders, volunteers and donors to help make this event a success for partnering organizations: Women At Risk International, The Hope Project, Barnabas Charities, Eagles Nest, Team Beyond, Association for a More Just Society, Res Life Church [orphanage & missionaries] and Pebbles and Stones. Clearly marked routes have distances of 5, 15, 30 and 50 miles, and a delicious lunch is served to registered riders and volunteers! Cost is $25 to register to ride, but the registration fee is waived and a Tshirt is given to all riders who raise or self-sponsor $150+. Volunteer needs include registration, parking/welcome, lunch, ride rangers, intersection managers, fitting children for helmets if they do not have one, and more.
