Cycling under a BULL MOON
From George Habel’s Blog “Note to Self”
The Bulls sponsor, host and promote the Bull Moon bicycle ride. The 2010 circuit (the evening of Saturday, July 10th ) was a big success raising over $30K for Durham Habitat. That will jump-start construction of a new Habitat home, and it will put another Bull City family on the path to home ownership.
I step aside and give the credit to 567 riders and the title sponsor, Cree. How appropriate that Durham’s LED manufacturer sponsored a nighttime event in need of lighting. Cree even gave-away Coleman headlamps that are made, of course, with LEDs!
I really like this event. You don’t have to be cycle-obsessed with Tour de France aspirations. It’s more of a family affair…you can take it easy…on a summertime Saturday night. There were two routes – ten and eighteen mile treks – both through downtown. The longer course incorporated the American Tobacco Trail.
The next Habitat cycling event is the Halloween Bike Ride on Saturday, October 30th. Read about last year’s ride – click here. Put it on your calendar. Don’t be scared…
