Halfway to Heaven Scholarship Bicycle Ride September 19th, 2009/Tourist Park, Garner, IA The First Annual Halfway to Heaven Scholarship Bicycle Ride will offer riders three distances to choose from. The 10 mile ride will take riders on a leisurely ride on blacktops outside of Garner while the 35 mile ride will continue around Clear Lake and return to Garner. For touring enthusiasts a 100 mile Century ride will first head South and East and then loop around North of Garner. This ride is neither a race nor a test of stamina. All participants ride at their own pace and in a safe and responsible manner. Support will be provided along the routes. Participants will celebrate the finish line with a free hot dog lunch and musical entertainment between the hours of 2:30-5:30 p.m. at Tourist Park in Garner. The first 100 registrants will receive a free T-Shirt. A Poker Run option is available for all three routes. An additional $5 entry fee will entitle riders to participate in a game of chance by selecting a poker hand along the route. The rider with the best hand will win "the grand prize" which is worth over $100.00! Start times will be 7:30a.m./100 mile; 11:00a.m./35 mile; & 1:00p.m./10mile ride. Registration fees are $25 for adults; $10 for students K-12 not to exceed $50 per family. A $5 discount is offered for early registration due by September 11.
