On June 28th, 2014 more than 420 cyclists from Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia and New York participated in the third annual, Two Rivers Bike Ride in support of Wye River Upper School and the Corsica River Conservancy. Participants started at the Centreville Courthouse Square and rode in 15, 30, 65 or 100 mile routes. The ride raised nearly $25,000.
“We are thrilled with the turnout and grateful for the support of the local community and many volunteers and sponsors involved in the event,” said, Myron Richardson, Event Chairman and treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the Wye River Upper School. “Not only do we attract hundreds of riders, but we also have a huge team of volunteers giving of their time to operate rest stops, support vehicles, help at registration and serve on the event committee. It’s a phenomenal effort on the part of so many people.”
Honorary Co-Chairs, Brian and Kim Billick made it a family affair. “We’ve enjoyed participating in this event and believe in the good work of Wye River Upper School (the event’s primary benefactor). We can’t think of a better way to support our community, while having fun and encouraging others to maintain healthy life-styles,” said Coach Billick. “This year it happened to coincide with our family reunion. Everyone participated. We had a great time and look forward to serving as Honorary Chairs again, “ added Kim Billick.
Event sponsors included, The Town of Centreville, Increte of Maryland and Ruff Roofers among others.
