The Ride for Sight heads into its third decade as one of the premier fund-rasing cycling events in the West and we welcome back the Cheyenne Eye Clinic as our sponsor again this year with promises of another first-clas ride. We'll start the event Saturday night, Aug. 10, from 6:30 - 8:00 with our popular pre-ride pasta dinner, compliments of Pizzeria Venti. The site of this year's pre-event dinner had not been finalized as of April 1, but all participants will be notified via email, mail or telephone once the venue has been established. The dinner will be highlighted by a variety of door prizes including a chance to buy tickets for a new road bike donated bby Rock on Wheels. The Ride for Sight itself on Sunday begins with a continental breakfast at 6:15 a.m. As always, riders will have their choice of several options for 10, 20 and 50 miles plus the full century or the metric routes for courses of 50 and 100 kilometers. All riders must start their return to the park at 12:00 noon. Riders will find rest stops every 10 miles featuring drinks, fruit, snacks and energy foods plus toilet facilities. Putting the wraps on the day will be a post-ride, sponsored by Culver's, Domino's Pizza, Olive Garden, Coca-Cola and others, in addition to the awarding of various participation prizes. The Ride for Sight is fully supported with sag wagons, roving mechanics and HAM radio assistance. Nobody gets left on the course, either as we carefully patrol the route at the end of the day and monitor every rider. And, it wouln't be the Ride for Sight without your complimantery comemorative T-short, water bottle, meal tickets, discount coupons and a variety of merchandise prizes!
