Welcome to the Pedal Thru The Pines!

Thank you for supporting the Center’s 12th Pedal Thru The Pines event!

This year’s Pedal Thru The Pines event brought with it a little rain, a little wind, and the tremendous spirit of cycling camaraderie that carried riders across the finish line! As we continue to grow the Pedal event, we are truly thankful for new and returning cyclists alike. We are always interested in improving our events, and we are grateful to those who provide feedback and share their comments, ideas, and thoughts with us!

Each year it’s a toss-up as to what the weather will bring; some years have brought bitter cold and slamming rain, and other years, only a cross wind. We honor the dedication of those who cycle through the rain, the wind, the hills, and the challenge. Great job!

We would also like to send our sincere thanks and appreciation out to the MS 150 Ride Marshalls that give so much support to the event, the cycle shops and mechanics that share their talents, and to the many volunteers who dedicate their time to making this event successful! Last but not least, thank you Pedal sponsors and in-kind donors for your enduring support!

We look forward to next year’s event on Saturday March 14, 2015, and yes, we have put in our order for good weather!
