The Give Hope Ride benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is set for May 26 at Fishers Heritage Park at White River. There are three aspects to the event. It is a bicycle ride for adults who will travel through Fishers and the adjacent countryside. There is also a children’s-and-family ride that goes along the park trails. Finally, just before the family ride is a bicycle-safety class for the kids.
The exact lengths and routes for the Adult Ride are still to be determined. There will be short, medium and long distances with the appropriate amount of stops. The maps and route information will be posted on the website. And new this year, is The Cruiser Ride for laid back riders going through Fishers neighborhoods.
The Children’s Ride route is 0.5 miles within the confines of the park. Families are welcome to ride the loop multiple times. They can even stop to take a little hike down by the White River.
Children’s Bike Safety Class is in the park and is for all ages. Topics such as wearing helmets, crossing roads, and riding with friends will be covered. Every child gets a Bike Safety Certificate.
The first official Give Hope Ride was last year. Prior to 2013, it had been an informal breakfast bike ride from the home of John and Peg Wright.
