It looks like we'll have a great day for the 5th Annual ORS Century Ride tomorrow. Carrie Baker Stahler, Marketing Director at Onion River Sports, and Pinky, Montpelier's own Citizen of the Year, were busy this morning putting the food boxes together for the five food and drink stops along the route for the cyclists. Folks from the Kellogg-Hubbard Library(the beneficiary of the funds raised from this ride), and ORS will be on hand tomorrow morning beginning at 7am, at the Montpelier Rec Field for registration. Registration is $65 which includes tickets to the end-of-the ride BBQ. There are two routes, 100k (62 miles) and 110 miles. Both routes start and end at the Montpelier Rec field. The 62 miler goes to Hardwick, Morrisville, Elmore and back to Montpelier. The 110 miler goes to Hardwick, Barton, Irasburg, Albany, No. Wolcott, Elmore then back to the rec field. The scenery is gorgeous.
We are still looking for some people to work at the BBQ at the rec field, 1-3pm and 3-5pm. If you are interested in helping out please call the library at 223-3338.
New this year is having WDEV broadcasting live during the ride. So if you're not riding or working on the Century Ride you can still hear what's going on by tuning into WDEV, AM 550 or FM 96.1. Tom Beardsly will tell you all about the Century Ride!
