This will be my third year riding in this event.
That may be hard to believe since it’s called, The Second Annual Barry’s Ride for Children. But they had changed the organization last year and the name changed.
The money raised from the event will benefit the children at the Astor Home in Rhinebeck, NY.
$30.00 early, postmarked before Oct. 8.
$40.00 up to the day of the event on Oct 14.
10 miles, 10:00am (that’s what I ride)
25 miles, 9:30am
50 miles. 9:00am
The event is Sunday Oct. 14 with a rain date of Oct. 21.
The rides begin and end at The Astor Home for Children, 6339 Mill St. Rhinebeck, NY 12572
Directions: Along route 9. About a quarter mile south of the Rhinebeck town traffic light, on the right.
Helmets are mandatory.
A BBQ follows the ride.
The first time I rode two years ago there was probably a 100 riders (one unicyclist). Last year they had reorganized, there were probably only 10, (one unicyclist). I was told last year that the organization members had worked out their differences, and next year (this year) they would be working together again. So I’m hoping there will be a large turnout (of unicycles).
Registration is 8:00am to 10:30am the day of the ride.
Each route gives the riders plenty of scenic roads coupled with autumn beauty in Dutchess county. The terrain is rolling to hilly with some winding roads.
