Byers Bike Bash

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, bicyclists were able to enjoy a fun recreational ride under the sun. More than 200 bicyclists showed up to participate in the Byers Bike Bash. Some children as young as 10 all the way up to an 81 year old man hopped onto their bikes and rode through the scenic routes of Northern Clay County. With the exception of a few racers, many are recreational riders.

The four routes range from 25 to 62 miles. Bikers encountered rest stops every 10 miles equipped with a full medical staff. Junior high and high school students decorated each stop which was stocked with fruit, cookies, water and sports drinks.

Volunteers Michona Roberts and Lizzie Dickinson say they are excited to give people snacks, hold their bikes and give them drinks as they stop by.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Katie's Kids Camp and local volunteer fire departments. This year the bash is looking to raise up to $5000. Organizers hope to continue the event for many years to come.

Byers Bike Bash Director Aron Little says, "It's our 5th year and we plan on continuing the ride… it's a great event."
