Posted by bentjmills1219 on October 2, 2010 at 10:13 AM

Our 3rd annual family bike ride was held on Sunday, September 26, 2010. It will started and ended at the Berkley Lions Club, Berkley, MA.

Riders registered & were greeted with some Raw Rev power bars (thank you RawRev), fruit, and pastry & donuts donated by Colonial Donuts & Dunkin Donuts.

There were 2 rides; a 10 and/or 25 mile ride. The 10 mile ride was mostly through Berkley. The 25 mile ride covers Berkley, Assonet and Freetown. Both rides began with our dear friend, Brittany, ringing the cow bell. Brittany was a recipient of a donation from Benjamin's Fund to help her buy an off road wheelchair. She was a great sport and smiled big for the camera and for the riders passing her by. Thank you to Brittany & her family for coming out to support our ride!

There was a post ride lunch at the Lions Club. Special thank you's to Piezoni's of Raynham & Homeplate Bay St. Grill for donating the sheet pan pizzas. Also, thank you to Best Foods for their donation of spaghetti, sauce & meatballs. Lunch was delicious.

We followed with lots of raffles & lots of winners! Thank you to all who have donated to Benjamin's Fund to support this. The raffles are strictly run on donated items, so without your support, there wouldn't be any.

Thank you to Vivian from Arbonne who came out to demonstrate some products from her line and give a sampling of the product (and thanks for riding too!)

Thank you to Active Health Massage who came out to support Ben's Fund by giving FREE massages to riders! (And rode also) The riders really enjoyed the relaxation after their rides (and some volunteers were very happy also)

AND IT DIDN'T RAIN!!!! It was a beautiful fall day and an exceptional day for a family bike ride.

Thank you all for your continued support of our events!

Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers! We always need help with registration, pick ups of donated items & food, raffles, making desserts, clean up & set up, water stops, etc, etc.

Special thank you to Scott & Liz Travis who take on this event and make it what it is.
