Bicyclists from all over the Midwest are gearing up for the Eighth Annual Huntington Bicycle Challenge being held Saturday, September 17.  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 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.

For 2011 there will be 3.5, 10, 21, 34 and 39 mile tour rides. The 3.5 and 10 mile tours are $15, and the 21, 34 and 39 mile tours are $25 if pre-registered before Monday, August 29. After the August 29 deadline all tours increase $10. Anyone who registers for the 21, 34 and 39 mile tours is welcome to ride all three routes, 94 miles. All tour courses are on-road.

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.
