ROTARY PEDALS OUT POLIO

Saturday, June 4, 2016

Sponsored by The Rotary Clubs of  Shamokin Dam, Lewisburg, Lewisburg (Sunrise), Lewisburg (Sunset) and Milton

 

The Rotary Clubs named above are sponsoring two bike rides on June 4, 2016.  The purpose of both rides is to raise funds and awareness for Rotary’s Global Polio Eradication Campaign. Both rides start and finish at Mifflinburg Community Park. 

 

Family Ride: Bike riders are encouraged to ride a part or all of the Mifflinburg – Lewisburg Rail Trail. This 9 mile off-road bike trail is suitable for children and adults that prefer a flat and leisurely bike ride.  This ride will be self-paced and guided.  Ride as far as you want and at the speed you want.

 

Jacks Mountain 50:  This 47 mile ride is for moderate to advanced road bike riders that enjoy changes in elevation. It is only 47 miles, but we are giving credit for 50.  It is not a race! The 47 miles will be done at a moderate pace so that it is enjoyable for all experienced bike riders. 

 

The suggested minimum donation per rider is $25 for adults and $5 for children under 12. All riders are encouraged to solicit addition donations toward their ride.  The top 3 fundraisers will receive prizes.

 

All donations are tax deductible and should be payable to “The Rotary Foundation” with PolioPlus on the memo line. Any gift of $1,000 or more will receive a special recognition from The Rotary Foundation.

 

Not a bike rider? Become a “virtual rider” by making a donation and supporting polio eradication.

 

Schedule:

Registration for both rides will be at the gazebo in Mifflinburg Community Park from 8 – 9 am.

Recognition of the top fund raisers will be at 9 am just before both rides start.

 

The first 100 registrants to check-in will receive a coupon for a 10% discount at the Rusty Rail Brewing Company & Restaurant located two blocks away along the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail.
