mother's day bike ride on Sunday

I am co-chair of a family bike ride on Sunday that benefits Greenwich safe cycling-
here is the press release--we have 100 people signed up so far! hope it goes well.
The Sixth Annual ‘Ride for Greenwich’
Please join Greenwich Safe Cycling for our 6th annual family bike ride on Sunday, May 11--a fun and active way to spend this Mother’s day morning. Organized by Greenwich Safe Cycling, the Ride includes 2 routes -- a 7 mile family ride, which winds its way around scenic Old Greenwich and Tod’s Point, and a 1.5 mile beginners’ ride. Cyclists can start anytime between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. Both rides start and end at the Old Greenwich Civic Center on 90 Harding Road, Old Greenwich. The cost is $10 per adult and $5 per child 12 and under (Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult). The lower entry fee is intended to cover costs. Any proceeds in excess of expenses go to GSC.
All children pre- registered by Wednesday, May 7 receive a T-shirt. Ride-day registration will be available, and all kids’ finishers get medals, and mothers will receive a special treat. Participants also get a map and refreshments, including bagels from Upper Crust Bagel Company. Routes will be patrolled and marked. Festivities include games and prizes for children. Come join GSC!!
Entry forms can be found in the office or in local bike shops, fitness centers and libraries. You may also e-mail emmymargs@hotmail.com for a form or more information.
GSC is a non-profit, tax exempt organization consisting of Town residents –both serious cyclists and occasional recreational riders of all ages ---whose mission is to make Greenwich a community in which Bicycling and walking are accepted as convenient and comfortable modes of transportation and recreation. Working with the town’s Department of Public Works, GSC has been instrumental in the preparation by professional consultants of a master bike plan.

I was looking forward to seeing you on Mother's Day. Good luck on your event. Once a race director always a race director!
