Pedal With Pete Ride Raises Funds For Research
Raising over $900 in pledges and donations, a total of 32 individuals took to their bicycles on Sunday, Sept. 18, to ride in the annual Pedal With Pete Fundraising event. The annual ride of 11 miles is sponsored locally by the Palo Alto County 4-H Youth Council and raises funds for ongoing research into cerebral palsy.
The riders, ranging in age from a 21-month old to a 78-year young rider, aired up their tires at the Palo Alto County Fairgrounds and proceeded from the Fairgrounds to 17th Street and traveled to Airport Road before heading west on the Rendering Works road, following the pavement until the paving ends and then retracing their steps back to the fairgrounds.
Despite a steady breeze out of the south, temperatures for the ride were comfortable and the riders returned to the fairgrounds for refreshments and awards
