Ann Weatherill was a local middle school teacher and cyclist who was struck and killed by a motorist while riding with friends on Mother's Day 2004. In 2005, the Ann Law was passed in Washington State, making it illegal for motorists to pass while an oncoming cyclist is approaching. Funds from this event go towards the installation and maintenance of the yellow "Share the Road" signs throughout the county that were installed on popular bicycle routes to raise awareness in Ann's honor and other bicycle safety programs sponsored by Wheatland Wheelers. 4000 in 50 Century Stick around for another day and enjoy the views and feel the burn!
