Ride for Gary


A team of family and friends called Gary’s Corner, organize a charity fundraiser benefiting the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA children.

This year due to COVID you may choose to join the team for a bicycle ride on August 29 leaving Grotto at Harvey’s Lake at 8am. There will be 2 options: Ride around Harvey’s Lake or join the extended 33 mile ride.

If you cannot make the event, riders may choose to join this team raising funds for a great cause by creating their own ride of approximately 30 miles. Virtual riders are encouraged to match the distance of the extended ride. Virtual riders may choose to ride 30 miles at one time or over the course of a few rides throughout the month of August.

This event will not have provisions or swag bags as in the past. We ask that riders maintain all social distancing guidelines. Wear your mask as required and follow cycling road rules.

Gary A. Michak dedicated his life to giving back to others. He taught martial arts to children and adults, ran a successful law practice, and during the last year of his life campaigned for a Magisterial District Judge position in the hopes of creating a safer, stronger Back Mountain community.

Help us carry on his legacy by supporting the Gary A. Michak Memorial, and join in a virtual bicycle ride, with all proceeds going to support the children of the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA.

Register to ride online here: https://wilkesbarre.recliquecore.com/programs/60065/ Or over the phone by calling 570-823-2191.

Registration is free for this ride. Donations can be added in any amount during your registration process and will go directly to the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA.
