4th Annual Colin Hubbell Ride

Sunday, August 5th, 2012

Saturday, August 11th is the Colin Hubbell Ride in Midtown.

This is a great ride that raises funds for causes that were important to Colin, which of course included cycling. And if riding is not a good enough motivator, consider the great food at the finish from the Traffic Jam and Snug.

There is a 22 mile and an 8 mile option — or you can just make a donation.

On-line registration is available through EventBrite.
