CASA ride shaping up

By Staff | May 19, 2011

Gearing up for its 7th annual benefit ride, CASA of the Eastern Panhandle is pleased to announce a record number of pre-registered cyclists of all ages and distances.

The CASA River Century Bike Ride offers a 10-mile off-road option on the beautiful C&O Canal towpath as well as on-road 25-, 50- and 100-mile routes. Proceeds from the ride will benefit CASA of the Eastern Panhandle, an organization that serves abused and neglected children in Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan Counties. Among many activities for children, the day features a “Tykes on Trikes” event that will take place at the home base location on the Shepherd University campus in Shepherdstown.

The 2011 River Century features the best of previous years’ rides with modified routes to allow riders to see the most beautiful parts of the West Virginia Panhandle. Participants will ride past century-old homes, apple orchards, tree-lined roads, family farms, and the Potomac River.

The ride is limited to the first 500 riders, please visit www.casarivercentury.org for details. For more information on CASA, go to www.casaep.org.
