There is a family bike ride planned for this Memorial Day Weekend to raise money for the Children's Advocacy Center.
That annual bike tour is set for Saturday, May 26th at Buffalo Springs Lake. Early registration ends this Friday. It's $36 per rider with three distances mapped out in scenic tours from 17 to 62 miles with lunch provided by Johnny Carinos.
New this year is a free kid's fun zone with bike races, carnival games, a jumper, cotton candy and prizes. Three kids' bikes will be given away in a drawing for race participants. Helmets are a must.
