Club Ride Update, ECC Explorer of the Century

Signature Ride Updates

The second annual Tour D’Abernethy from Beaver Valley Ski Club was once again a great success. We had over 30 riders participating, and the event raised $17,500 for Camp Ooch. Jim’s wife Cathy and his daughter Nicole who rode, attended. Thanks to all who participated.

Watch for updates for the Steve Hancock Memorial Ride scheduled for Saturday September 18th. We should be offering at least two ride options. Steve’s Ghost bike has not weathered well and we are funding, and working with the organization, to bring it back to an appropriate condition in advance of the ride.

ECC Explorer Dr Event – Saturday August 28th
