Cycle For Safety Comin' Up!



Event Description:
This is an event for the whole family and our intention is to educate cyclists and the general public on bike safety rules and laws affecting motorists and cyclists. Remembering Cory Horton, one of the founding members of our team, is another goal of this event. This year we will have a shorter 34 mile ride, in addition to the 52 mile ride to Cory's memorial site. Also, a Fun Ride will be held on the campus of St. George's and will be a closed course. A raffle of cycle related items, will be given away at 2pm. Additional raffle and food tickets can be purchased at the event. Hamburgers and hot dogs with all the fixins will also be served at 1pm. Cool max tee shirts will be given to first 150 registered. Event packets can be picked up event day, or May 2nd at Bike World in Collierville, 763 West Poplar Avenue, from 10am-6pm. Everyone must sign waiver.
