This loop is intended ONLY for two-wheeled bicycle riders who can comfortably ride at least one mile with no parent assistance. The following will NOT be allowed on this course: bicycles with training wheels, tricycles, scooters, balance bikes or any bike riders who need adult assistance to get started or keep pace with the ride. For safety reasons, parents are not allowed to be on this course.

Bowman Blacktop Loop: A short loop inside the Bowman School blacktop, lined with balloons and race flags – a great route for those riding a tricycle, big wheels, bicycle with training wheels, balance bike or scooter.

Please make sure to bring a proper fitting helmet for each rider.

Some individuals get very creative and set up bake sales and other ventures to raise money for their ride. CLICK HERE for more fundraising tips.

Ambitious fundraisers can aim for the Heavy Hitter level (over $300 raised) and the Breakaway level (over $800 raised) which will be recognized with a gift from the PMC.

VOLUNTEERS:
Calling everyone who is 14 and older! Come join the fun and volunteer to help at the ride. We have shifts for Saturday and Sunday, as well as all times before, during and after the event. Find a few friends and sign up together to help with everything from check-in to ride monitoring, passing out snacks and face painting to name a few. Community service credit will be issued to those who want it. And, parents, this is a great opportunity to cheer on your rider from the route!
