During the past month local riders have had the opportunity to participate in two big time events. The first, on 3/24, was Tour de Parks organized by the Friends Of the Legacy Trail. The second will be this coming Sunday, 4/27, Sharkey's Ride the Beaches to benefit Livestrong.
Both events are well organized and feature a great lunch and get together at the end.
The Tour de Parks debuted a new route this year, sending riders North on Honore well into Sarasota to showcase the theme, "extend the Legacy Trail North".The flyer for Sharkey's follows.
