Pedaling for Hope bike ride to be August 18

Pedaling for Hope Pedaling for Hope, Tanglefoot Trail in New Albany, August 18, 2018

The second annual Pedaling for Hope bike ride will be Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Registration will start at 7AM at the Trailhead in New Albany at 100 E. Bankhead Street with the race beginning at 8:00 AM. This is a partnership between New Albany Main Street and Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo. Proceeds will go to help Regional Rehab offset their ability to offer free services to the citizens of New Albany and Union Co.

Community Development and Main Street Director Billye Jean Stroud encourages all bike riders of all levels to come and enjoy a beautiful day on the Tanglefoot Trail. We will have 25 mile, 50 mile, and 100 kilometer options. All riders will receive a t-shirt. There will be water and sports drink along the course, and a service vehicle will follow behind.

Registration is $35 and El Agave will be providing a lunch for all registered riders. Mrs. Stroud stated “if you do not want to ride feel free to come and listen to the music on the Trailhead, shop downtown and of course we will accept any monetary donations to this great cause.”

Participants can park for the event at the Jennie Stephens Smith Library at 219 King Street, New Albany, MS.
