On Saturday, September 19, cyclists from 14 area communities will ride to the YMCA Dartmouth to celebrate the completion of the 2nd Annual Summer Bike Challenge. Over 110 cyclists have ridden over 56,000 miles since May 1 and hope to reach 60,000 miles by Labor Day for the South Coast Bikeway Alliance Team which is part of the National Bike Challenge. Riders will gather at the YMCA Dartmouth’s Fall Festival and be recognized for their accomplishments. Over $1000 in prizes will be awarded. Prize categories include: Top Male and Female Overall, Second and Third Place Overall and Top Male and Female in each community. Additionally, the community that logs the most miles (per capita) will receive a trophy.
