The final bicycle ride of the season to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project will be held on Fri March 18th. The seniors from the Groves RV Resort have raised over $1,100 this year and over $8,000 since the group started the event 7 years ago.
In Feb, 57 seniors ranging in age from 60 to 87 made the 10-mile ride, which leaves the Groves RV Resort at 1 pm and makes 5 stops to draw cards. The winning poker hand splits the pot with half of the $10 entry fee per rider going to WWP.
The riders, wearing safety yellow shirts draw a lot of attention from passing motorists and are given the right a way while crossing busy intersections.
The Bayside Bar and Grill always donates three $10 gift certificates to the top three hands
