For those of you looking for a new option for organized bike rides this summer, head on over to our neighbors just outside of Erie, Pennsylvania. The Tour de West County is sponsored by the Presque Isle Cycling Club, and it's a ride with 25-mile and 50-mile options, plus a 5-mile family fun ride.
The ride is a fundraiser for The Lance Armstrong Foundation, but you don't have to collect pledges to ride, just donate any amount to register--donations of at least $25 are guaranteed a t-shirt, and at least $50 guarantees you a t-shirt and hat. Food, beverages, and entertainment will also be available.
It happens on Saturday, July 24, 2010 (you'll still have time to get back for our Night Ride on the Towpath Trail that evening!).
