2013 Annual Appalachian Bike Tour Scholarship Ride
by Tina Jackson
 


Forty-two cyclists participated in the twentieth Annual Appalachian Bike Tour Scholarship Ride on a foggy Saturday on September 29. It is the longest running event held at Yatesville Lake State Park.

The scenic tour, sponsored by the Lawrence County Democratic Woman’s Club, has attracted bike enthusiasts from five states and offers cyclists a choice of two circuits, ranging from 30 to 60 miles. The ride begins at the Yatesville Marina and loops throughout Lawrence County including Blaine, Webbville, Fallsburg, Cherryville and Charley depending upon the circuit the cyclist chooses. Volunteers operate two a rest stops with food and drink along the route.

A particularly popular aspect of the ride is the hot dog dinner at the finish for fun and fellowship. In an effort to enhance safety and track the cyclists, the Big Sandy Amateur Radio Club of Louisa and Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department volunteer their time and skills each year to assist in communications. The tour also has a roving “sag wagon” with water and snacks and a lift back to the marina to assist distressed riders.

The event is a fundraiser for a college scholarship awarded each spring to a deserving senior from Lawrence County High School.

The 2014 Appalachian Bike Tour Scholarship   Ride will be on September 27, 2014.
