Bike Ride to support Special Olympics Cumberland County
The Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks & Recreation Department is taking registration for its annual Metric Century Bike Ride.
The event, which is Oct. 3, raises money for Special Olympics Cumberland County.
Cyclists can sign up to race over 12, 30 or 62 miles, the last of which is just a hair under 100 kilometers, giving the race its metric century designation.
The cost to ride is $20, and participants who sign up on or before Sept. 17 get a race T-shirt.
Race-day registration will start at 7 a.m., and the ride begins at 8 a.m.
For more information about the race, contact parks and recreation at 910-433-1547.
Project Unify is a grant program from the Department of Education that educates and activates our youth into leadership roles within Special Olympics North Carolina. Please follow the link for more information on Project Unify.
