Century Ride benefits persons with disabilities

LOGAN – Saturday’s Cache Valley Century Ride is a benefit for adaptive cycling for people with disabilities in northern Utah.

<p class=”p2″>Erin Evans, event coordinator for Common Ground Outdoor Adventures, said it starts Saturday morning at the Richmond City Park.

<p class=”p2″>“The ride now benefits Common Ground’s adaptive cycling program,” said Evans. “We go on daily activities where we take people with disabilities that maybe otherwise couldn’t bicycle using our adaptive equipment.

<p class=”p2″>“So we raise money through this ride to buy the adaptive equipment and to get our participants where we go to cycle. We went cycling in the Tetons a couple of weeks ago.

<p class=”p2″>“It’s just some cool trips and cool opportunities that people wouldn’t have otherwise.”

<p class=”p2″>Evans said many of the volunteers for this event are drawn from the cycling community. For all events Common Ground has a large community of volunteers who come from all over Cache Valley.

<p class=”p2″>The adaptive start for open cycling is at 7:45 Saturday morning and the open start for other cyclists at 8 o’clock at Richmond Park at the corner of 100 South and 200 West.

<p class=”p2″>Evans said the course will take bikers up into Franklin and to Preston and back down through Cornish, Clarkston, Amalga and Mendon then back up to Richmond. There are 40, 60 or 100-mile courses to choose from.
