Tour D’Abernethy Charity Ride Update

Time to sign up / donate to this great cause!!

We are now closing in on the last two weeks before our 3rd annual Tour D’Abernethy in support of childhood cancer. We have three great rides planned, two road distances and an exciting new gravel option.

First and foremost, this is a charity event, and we want to exceed our goal of $10,000 in support of Campfire Circle (formerly Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium), for kids and families affected by childhood cancer.
