Rich Rau Memorial Bike Tour a Huge Success

clarke-voices-thumbMany thanks to all who helped make the 5th Annual Rich Rau Memorial Bike Tour & Pancake Breakfast a success.   The weather held out again this year for the 135 cyclists riding 15, 30 or 50 miles through Clarke County.   The Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church Men hosted a fantastic pancake breakfast that, as always, received rave reviews.   Thank you to the numerous volunteers from the Town of Berryville & The Laurel Center for assisting with registration, rest stops & road crossings on the bike tour courses.   We would also like to thank the following sponsors of the tour:   Berryville Grille, Berryville Main Street, Black Bar Bicycles, Blue Ridge Bicycles, Broy and Son Pump Service, Inc., Carter+Burton Architecture, Element Sports, Houseworks Design Build, Logo Apparel, Lost Dog Bed and Breakfast, Main Street Architecture, P.C., Weatherproofing Systems, and the continued support of the Winchester Wheelmen. And a special thanks to Debbie Rau & all of the Rau family members who have so generously donated the proceeds to The Laurel Center & the Town of Berryville Bike Safety Fund.
