Riders of all levels bike to raise funds for a good cause
From beginners to families to casual enthusiasts to experts to, yes, even clowns, the Kickin’ Asphalt Bicycle Club welcomes riders of any level, all in the name of a good cause, to the 6th Annual Pedal 4 Kids event. 100% of the proceeds for the day’s events go to the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island, a club servicing, on average, 300 kids a day that offers after school and summer education and enrichment programs. You can exercise your body and heart all at the same time.
Named as a Top 5 Family Biking Getaway in the nation by Disney’s FamilyFun magazine, Hilton Head Island’s pathways serve as the backdrop to the largest biking event in the Lowcountry. Join 400 of your fellow cyclists on Saturday, September 29 to ride alongside your family, friends, cycling teammates and neighbors in the 2012 Pedal 4 Kids. Choose from 3 island rides – a 10 mile route, a 20/25 mile route or a 40 mile route, all passing through the Barker Field area of the Island and including 2 rest stops with water and fruit. They even offer a Family Fun Ride for families with younger members. With bike safety tips, rules of the road and an obstacle course, it allows even the youngest members to participate in the day.
The day kicks off at Hilton Head High School with the first ride (40-miler) departing at 8:30am. With live entertainment, vendor booths including on-site massages (yes please!), bike shops and food, plus a live DJ from 103.1 The Drive, crowds can be entertained up until the leaders cross the finish line and for some time thereafter.
