Bicyclists from all over the Midwest are gearing up for the Ninth Annual Huntington Bicycle Challenge being held September 15 this year.  The cycling event is a fundraiser organized by Pathfinder Services, Parkview Home Health and Hospice and 3 Rivers Velo Sport Bike Club.

Proceeds from this event will again go to two causes: Pathfinder Services, to assist teenagers with developmental disabilities with scholarships to attend summer camp and Parkview Home Health & Hospice’s quality, end-of-life care for the terminally ill.

This year there will be 10, 21, 34 and 39 mile tour rides. The 10, 21, 34 and 39 mile tours are $25 if pre-registered before Monday, August 27. After August 27, registration for all tours increases to $35. Anyone who registers for the tours is welcome to ride all routes, 104 miles. All tour courses are on-road.

The Business Team Challenge will take place on Saturday, September 15 as well and is a special 27 mile on-road course. Businesses, universities, bike teams and individuals may enter a team of three to six riders and the cost per team is $250. Businesses will compete for first, second and third place team medals. After the team event, team challenge riders may also ride any additional tour courses at no cost. All Tour and Business Team Challenge courses start and end at the Pathfinder Services and Parkview Home Health and Hospice parking lot located at 2824 Theater Avenue and ride through beautiful scenic Huntington County.
