A la Car-less: A Progressive Dinner by Bicycle (with a side of Glow to Go!)
Come join Amy Addams and friends on Saturday evening, September 9, in Elizabethtown for a progressive dinner by bicycle. We will take a tour of Elizabethtown and check out the local scenery in our little Lancaster County town. This is a fundraiser for the Johns Hopkins Pancreatic Cancer Research Center to help find better treatments and a cure for pancreatic cancer, one of the cancers with the poorest survival rates today. (Amy's brother-in-law was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this spring and Amy is raising money to help find a cure.) The ride will be that of a Sunday social pace (D pace, 8 - 10 miles an hour) and will stop at several places in Elizabethtown for the different courses. Total distance will be between 10 and 12 miles. The menu will be an Italian theme and will include appetizer, soup, salad, aperitif, main course and dessert. (Word on the street is that the dessert may not be Italian; rumor has it that Amy is making chocolate chip cookies and other goodies for the dessert table!)
All riders are expected to wear a helmet, bring a tail light, have a bicycle in good working condition, be able to keep up with the pace, be comfortable riding in a group, and practice safe bicycle riding skills. While children are welcome, this is not a ride for little ones on training wheels and those who cannot keep up with the pace and be comfortable riding in a large group. Consent forms/waivers will be completed at check-in on Saturday, September 9. Please arrive early to allow time to complete the paperwork and get checked in.
A limited number of glow items to decorate your bike will be available for purchase at registration.
In the event of rain, the dinner will be hosted at the church.
