Veteran's Memorial Park
This will be our 7th Annual HTW Bike Event here in the Charlotte, NC Area. The event is 2 days of riding and friendship building with our 20 riders with varying levels of disability. Friday the 9th of Sep will find us riding through middle of the beautiful Charlotte Downtown. We will depart Eastway Park at 0900. This ride is going to be a slow roll and we will stop for photo ops when and where the mood strikes us. We will stop at 2 schools to meet the students and spend some time with them answering questions and promoting cycling as a positive activity to channel energy and a means for us to overcome life’s challenges. Lunch will be provided and registration is required for each rider. Veterans with a documented disability will ride at no cost, and the fee for all others is $40.
Saturday is a more formalized event, sanctioned by USACycling. The departure times for the rides are: 66 mile route 0800; the 34 mile route 0930; and 1015 for the 15 mile route. Many of our riders will are riding for enjoyment and therapy so the pace for the group will be slow and the casual pace allows for easy conversation and forever friendships forged. The ride begins in Mint Hill, NC at Veteran’s Memorial Park. Start times will be staggered to get everyone back to the park near the same time. Routes are 15, 34, and 66 miles. The routes are well marked and a support vehicle will follow each route for assistance. There will also be a rest stop every 15 miles with refreshments. Registration fee for the ride is $45 On-line registration will begin June 1. Routes will be available at the registration table and at the on-line registration where they will be downloadable for most GPS systems.
A fantastic meal of NC BBQ will follow and is included in your registration fee. There are also various military displays and demonstrations at the park during the day so this is a great event and fun for all.
