Ride 4 Life
Ha, this isn't some crazy biker poker run thingy, or a commitment to the Hells Angels. Tomorrow I’ll be playing Roadie again. Yep, Little Miss Sunshine and I will be breaking out the road bikes for a nice little stroll through the country roads near Davidson, NC. Even though the weather around here has been bad enough to keep the trails in a not-so-rideable condition, that’s not why we’re riding on the road. Nope, it’s time for a charity ride. Which one? Well, I’m glad you asked.
The Collier Lilly Ride 4 Life
The Collier Lilly Ride 4 Life is a recreational bike ride to honor the life of Collier Cobb Lilly, raise awareness and money for organ sharing, and to bring various communities together to celebrate life.
Saturday, June 5, 2010 @ 7:00 AM
For serious cyclists, the day kicks-off with a 100K (@ 62 miles), a 50K (@ 31 miles) or a 15K (@ 10 miles) ride through the beautiful back roads of Mecklenburg, Iredell, Rowan, and Cabarrus counties. These rides will be fully supported with rest stops and SAG vehicles. The rides will begin and end at Baker Sports Complex on the campus of Davidson College in Davidson, NC.
After your ride, hang around for a delicious lunch (included with your registration fee!!) and fun-filled activities for the whole family.
Registration begins at 7:00AM and the rides start at 8:00 AM.
So, come on out and join us for the Collier Lilly Ride 4 Life. This will be a nice ride, and it’s for a good cause. Don’t have a road bike? Well, bring out whatever bike you have and take on the 10 mile option. That would be doable on any type of bike. Come on out and join the fun!
As for the rest of the weekend, I’m not sure just yet. I’ll probably head out for a nice run in the park early Sunday morning with Little Miss Sunshine, and hopefully I can get out on the mountain bike later on in the day. Maybe the rain will hold off long enough for some trails around here to open. I’m going crazy since I haven’t been riding my mountain bike that much lately. Actually, I have a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell, er mountain bike.
