Thank You Community Bike Ride 2021

A big thank you to all of you for your help in the 2021 Community Bike Ride! We had a fun and safe day. Thank you for your positive thoughts if you could not be with us that day.

Thank you to the volunteers who make the ride what it is. And, a big thank you to Anderson Rentals, The Merc, and Sunflower Outdoor & Bike for making sure everyone had what they needed! 

For the first time in our ten years of bike rides – we welcomed donations for a local organization – FLAT (Friends of Lawrence Area Trails). They are on a mission to help Lawrence complete the bike loop. Thank you to those who donated – they reported to us that they collected $1,229 in donations at the event.  

Please enjoy a quick look at a few pictures from the day. We look forward to the ride in 2022.

In the meantime – stay active!
