Gary A. Michak Lakefest Ride 2020
Ride for fun at Harvey’s Lake and help children at the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA!
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.
