35th Annual Bike-A-Thon to Aid Library (Aired on Sept. 14 and 15, 2019)
This week’s guests on RadioRotary were from the Pleasant Valley Lions Club—Fred De Wald and Pam Highbridge. Every year the Lions Club raises money and improves the Town’s health with its annual Bike-A-Thon, a chance for bikers of all ages to ride together on what has so far always been a beautiful fall day. In 2019, the Lions devoted the occasion to the “Ride to Rebuild” the Pleasant Valley Free Library, which suffered a devastating fire on Election Day 2018. Bikers could choose a 10-mile ride that has traffic eliminated, a ride with a break at Terhune Orchard for free apples and cider and another treat—bananas and water—back at the Pleasant Valley Firehouse. Or they can take a 25-mile along regular roads. Sponsors of riders have a chance to win a discount on a new bike or a child’s bike helmet. The Lions run several events each year, including a “Breakfast with Santa” jointly with Pleasant Valley Rotary.
