Who would have thought it was the third week in July in Lawrence! Approximately 175 people came out over the course of Saturday morning to participate in the 4th annual Lawrence Community Bike Ride at Lawrence’s Rotary Arboretum.
There was a 10 mile (actually 11.1) mile ride that rolled out at 8:00am followed by a three mile ride out to Clinton Park’s Sander’s Mound at 8:30 whole local kids rode around the 1 mile closed loop at around the Arboretum throughout the morning.
Funds raised were used to purchase kid’s bike helmets that were free to kids who came and they were also fitted on-site to make sure there was a proper fit.
RideLawrence.com is a service of the Lawrence Central Rotary and we’d again like to thank all the sponsors who make this event possible: Anderson Rentals, The Merc, Sunflower Outdoor & Bike, Lawrence Econolodge, Ryde Barre, Ortho Kansas, McDonalds, GP Velotek, Lawrence Bicycle Club, Lawrence Community Hospital, Safe Kids Douglas County, and Bev West Creative.
We’re in the planning stages for a new fall Community Bike Ride on Lawrence’s East side starting from the Haskell University Stadium Parking lot and riding the Burroughs Creek Trail. The Ride is scheduled for September 20th and more information if coming soon. If you’d like to be a part and volunteer or help sponsor please email us at email@example.com.
