26 Aug 2010 Plans set for Conway Fall Classic Bike Tour
All participants are invited to a “finish party” which will feature a catered lunch and family-friendly music.
The registration fee of $35 or $50 for a family is tax-deductible, supports local non-profits and includes a T-shirt (sponsored by Stoby’s), a delicious meal and support stations (sponsored by Caldwell Toyota) along the route.
The Conway Fall Classic Tour is organized by volunteers from Conway Advocates for Bicycling and the Conway Interfaith Clinic to raise funds for both non-profit groups. All of the registration fees will go to these organizations.
“The tour is a great opportunity to prepare for the Big Dam Bridge 100 in Little Rock the following weekend,” said Chad Files, president of Conway Advocates for Bicycling. “The 50-mile route has a variety of terrain, with some good up-hills and some exciting down-hills. It will be a real challenge for any cyclist.”
While it seems natural for a bicycling group to raise money through a tour, some may be interested to know why Conway Interfaith Clinic has decided to partner with CAB. “It’s really a wonderful fit,” said Kittie Aaron, clinic executive director. “We are committed to keeping the working uninsured healthy and bicycling is a great, low-cost, high-return activity for health and wellness.”
Conway Advocates for Bicycling are working to increase not only awareness of bicyclists’ rights and responsibilities on the road, but the amount of events for cyclists in Faulkner County. CAB sees itself as helping the city of Conway become a bike-friendly community.
Conway Interfaith Clinic provides medical care to the uninsured of Faulkner County and dental services to children with ARKids/Medicaid and low-income adults.
