Cyclists from as far away as Idaho and Hawaii have signed up for the 8th Annual Six Pillars Century 2016 Blackwater Tour scheduled for Saturday, May 7, rain or shine; a fund raising event that benefits Character Counts Mid Shore, Inc.
Six Pillars Century offers four flat courses for cyclists to choose their level of riding including the 37 mile Fun & Fitness; the 56 mile Ironman 70.3 Eagleman and the 100 mile Century; all through scenic Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. There is also the 11 mile Family Ride so younger cyclists can participate in this event with their family and friends. Start and finish line is at Great Marsh Park, Cambridge where a continental breakfast and a Picnic in the Park is served to registered riders.
Rest stops along the course includes fluid, food and friendly faces as well as SAG support. On The Rivet Cycle and Sport will be at the park in the morning to assist with any cycling needs. “The dedicated volunteers are the true heroes of this event. They make sure that every cyclist has a great time,” states Susan Luby, Executive Director of Character Counts Mid Shore. “This is a ride; not a race and a wonderful way to socialize with other cyclists,” adds Luby.
Six Pillars Century proceeds benefit the 8,200 students in the mid shore area who receive character lessons throughout the school year based on the Six Pillars of Character – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship; all at no cost to the schools or taxpayers.
