Dream Team Bike Ride

By Staff | Jul 6, 2010

RUTHVEN – A new and exciting family event is coming to Bully Bullhead Weekend this year. The Spencer Dream Team, a division of the Iowa Youth Dream Team, along with Steve Derrickson and Bully’s Bar and Grill of Ruthven, will be sponsoring the BBW Dream Team Bicycle Ride. The ride will be held on Saturday, July 10, stating in downtown Ruthven at Bully’s.

 There will be three divisions of rides that participants may enter: Red, White, and Blue. While all three rides will encircle Lost Island Lake, the rides will be different in distances. The rides will be 12 miles, 25 miles, and 55 miles in length. This charity ride event is open to anyone and everyone—families or individuals. The emphasis is on fun! This ride features a terrain of rolling mild hills and the ride is ridden at your own pace.

 The 12-mile route goes around Lost Island Lake. The 25-mile route goes out to county roads B17 and N26, around the west side of Lost Island Lake and back to Bully’s in Ruthven. The 55-mile route goes through Graettinger and Wallingford, then back to Bully’s in Ruthven. There will be stops along the way as well as stops at Wallingford and Graettinger owned by the Derrickson’s. Registration begins at 8 a.m. at Bully’s, and riders can take off as soon as they register. Each rider will receive a complimentary safety bright BBW T-shirt for registering in the event.

 Register by stopping at Bikes, Boards, and Blades in downtown Spencer; online at www.bikeiowa.com; by e-mail at rnase@mac.com; or by phone at 712-264-1068. The cost of the ride is $25 per person or $50 per family, which includes the BBW T-shirt. For more information contact Russ Salton at 515-490-4241.
