The third annual WackyW bike ride is Sept. 8. The one-day event is a fundraiser for Douglas County schools, and a family-friendly celebration of health and wellness.
This year’s event offers riders a six-, 45-, 62- or 100-mile course. The six-mile ride is designed for families. All courses start and end at Rocky Heights Middle School, south of McArthur Ranch Road on Monarch Boulevard.
A portion of each registration fee is earmarked for the Douglas County school of the rider’s choice.
Each course includes aid stations, SAG wagons, medical assistance and law enforcement.
A vendors’ area with food and activities also will be available.
Siblings Ted and Susie Wargin, who both have children in Douglas County schools and are avid cyclists, launched the ride in 2011. Susie Wargin is 9News’ morning sports anchor.
Registration is $30 for the six-mile ride on the day of the event, topping out at $110 for the 100-mile ride. Registration for the 45-, 62- and 100-mile rides includes a WackyW jersey. Discounts are available to those who register before the day of the event.
