Join the “Pedal the Beach” Ride
March 12, 2013 by Kim
The SBIC (South Brunswick Interchurch Council) is hosting a brand new event this year–a bike ride on Ocean Isle Beach on Saturday, April 20th starting at 9 am. The event will begin and end at the OIB Town Hall, where a Post-Ride Festival will offer participants a chance to celebrate their achievement with food, music and fun.
The ride isn’t a competition, just a fun ride intended for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Two shorter courses of 5 and 10 miles will take place entirely on the island, while two longer routes of 30 and 60 miles will take riders over the scenic high rise bridge, throughout the southwest portion of Brunswick County and back to the island.
The event will raise money for local families in need, and will also promote fun and safety for everyone involved. Bicycle helmets are required for all riders. Volunteers and SAG wagons will be located along the two longer routes to assist with directions and mechanical breakdowns. Also, rest stops will be located every 15 miles to provide snacks, water, Gatorade and bathroom facilities. Cost of the two shorter rides is $20, and the longer rides are $35. Safety-green high performance short-sleeve shirts will be provided for each paid registration. Children under 16 are free, when accompanied by a paid adult.
The Winds Resort is pleased to be an event sponsor and has donated a free stay as a raffle prize. If you need accommodations for this event The Winds Resort will be offering a special discount to participants. You can register for the event online at www.active.com.
