Something new this year… During the Covered Bridge Metric Century, club member Steve Holland will have a team of photographers strategically stationed along the ride routes to capture photos of our riders and the beautiful Lancaster county scenery and covered bridges. These photos will be available for sale after the ride at his website, www.zenfolio.com/imaginations. Available items will include digital downloads and prints in popular sizes, all at very reasonable prices. And best of all, proceeds benefit the Conner M Holland Foundation (www.cmhollandfoundation.org), which provides financial support to families of children with pediatric cancer, and runs the Conner’s Comfies ™ program that distributes new pajamas to sick children at the Hershey Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Visit his tent to learn more about the Foundation!
The proceeds from this ride fund the Lancaster Bicycle Club's grants program. Since 2000, the Lancaster Bicycle Club has provided in excess of $245,000 in grant money in support of Lancaster County bicycle related requests.
