BOLTON - The annual Christine Perry Memorial Bike Ride is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 1, and riders of all abilities are invited to participate.
Proceeds of this fundraising ride are to fund the Christine Perry Memorial Scholarship awarded annually at Bolton Central School.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the ride starts promptly at 9 a.m., from the I-87 Northway Exit 24 Park 'N Ride lot. The route is approximately 25 miles round-trip, and the excursion is of intermediate difficulty.
Lunch will be provided after the ride at the home of Mark and Linda Perry on Federal Hill Road in Bolton Landing. Helmets are required.
The memorial ride was started in 2003 to honor Christine Nicole Perry, who died several years ago at a young age in an out-of-state automobile crash.
The Christine Perry Scholarship is presently a $1,000 sum given each year to a graduating senior. The first memorial ride started with 10 participants and it has since grown substantially. The fundraiser in 2009 had 21 riders and $1,900 was raised. More is anticipated this year.
