All proceeds will be driven back into Columbia County to strengthen bike friendliness, cycling safety, and access (e.g. infrastructure like bike racks, signage, trail improvements, etc.) with the goal of reaping the well-documented economic benefits of bike tourism and health benefits of local bicycling!  Your participation and support will help ensure this annual ride will continue to be a success!

This ride and the cycling improvements that will be achieved with the proceeds are in honor of Phil Barlow, who planted the seed for this concept and cared passionately about expanding opportunities for bicycling and fashioning Columbia County as a bicycling destination.
