BRIDPORT-The Foundation for Alcoholism Research, Inc. (FAR) has announced that it will hold a benefit bike ride on Saturday, Oct. 3 (rain date Oct. 4) starting from the Bridport Green. The event organizers look forward to significant participation by area bicyclists to raise substantial research funds as well as increase awareness of the need for additional investigation into the disease of alcoholism.
The FAR bike ride will offer two routes starting and ending at the Bridport Green - lunch and T-shirts will be provided. Cyclists may ride on a shorter, 15-mile route within Bridport, or on a longer, 38-mile route from Bridport through Addison and Panton, and returning through Bridport.
Riders for the 38-mile route will start at 8 a.m.; 15-mile riders will start at 9:3a.m.
Advanced registration is encouraged on-line at www.alcoholismresearch.org, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 758-2243. Riders can also register on site at the Bridport Green.
The minimum adult fee is $50 and the minimum fee for children under 16 is $20. Riders are encouraged to solicit donations from sponsors for more than the entry fee.
