February 18th at CoCo Di Mama’s in Central Eleuthera
For many years we have gone to see the Ride for Hope here on Eleuthera as it started here but then moved its venue to Nassau. Now it has come back to the island where it started. I’m not sure why but it will be starting down at Coco Di Mama near the Governor’s Harbour airport instead of in the ballpark in town. I suppose it could have something to do with the construction that is going on with the road by the sea. No matter what the reason, I’m sure it will be a great event and we hope to get out to see part of it Saturday. If you are on the island, please use caution driving and cheer on the riders that do so much for a great cause.
“The Ride for Hope Gran Fondo, a long-distance road cycling event in which participants ride a marked route, will be held on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 in Eleuthera. The Ride will be staged at Coco di Mama resort in Governor’s Harbour. Rider participation levels will be linked directly to the amount of funds each rider raises, and each rider’s promotional package and recognition will also be based on the funds they raise.”
“Susan Larson, co-founder of The Ride for Hope, said, “The Ride For Hope is a fundraiser. We garner funds together to meaningfully impact a critical cause, and eradicate cancer from our shores. Our riders’ donations help save lives every day, and we are committed to helping riders do so by putting on a high-caliber event in 2017.”
