Let’s Go for a Ride



By Julia Barnett

You’ve been training for it all year, hitting the gym and biking all over the island—the 3rd Annual Tour de Marco is almost here! Over a hundred bicyclists are expected to participate in the Sunday, April 14th, fund-raising ride.

And this year, one can register either as an individual or as a family. Riders can pre-register online (www.active.com, search for “Tour de Marco”) or at the YMCA, for the big 30-mile trek, or the smaller 5-mile and 15-mile rides. Pre-registration fees are $20 for individuals and $40 for families. On the day of the ride, participants will be able to register beginning at 7 AM, for $25 for an individual, and $45 for families.

All participants will receive door prizes and goodie bags. Remember: all are required to wear helmets. The rides will begin and end at the YMCA, and all proceeds benefit the YMCA and its community programs. For more information, bike on down to the YMCA at 101 Sandhill Street, or call 239-394-YMCA.
