    Music, games and activities during and after the rides will be provided for children and adults.

    or desire to support the local YMCA Branch. Entry fee for the riders is $35 for adults and $20 for children
    12 and under for the first child in a family and $10 for each additional child. Minors may need to be
    accompanied by parent or guardian. The Rotary Bike Ride for the Y will be on May 10, 2014 at 7:30am

    I saw this ride posted at Inverness Bicycle & Fitness. Looks like fun but strange routes. Still thinking but I'll probably register in the next few weeks.

    I thought the routes seemed strange also! I was planning on the Ocala ride the same day but this is closer and supports my area so I'll likely do this one.

    Anyone planning on riding? I wasn't positive but I decided last minute to go. I'll register in person before the ride.

    There didn't seem to be a huge turnout. I asked before I left, and I think they said around 50 people. I wasn't a big fan of the t-shirt (no date or location). There was a raffle but there was really no mention of it after the ride. No snacks other than sandwiches after the ride. The sag stops had snacks though. Overall I was glad to help contribute to a good cause though.
