The Annual Hilly Hundred Bike Ride runs this Saturday. Greg Cooper, an avid rider and co-organizer says that the name comes from the distance ridden; 100 miles or just over 163 kilometres. This year’s ride will nclude two ther distances, the “metric” century ride, which is 100 kilometres and a 37 kilometre memorial ride “Chrissy’s Loop.” Chrissy’s Loop is in honour of the co-founder of the ride Chris Emery, who passed away earlier this year after a breave battle with cancer. Riders pat a fee to partake in the century rides, but Chrissy’a Loop is free of charge and open to all who would like to take it. The ride is operated as not for profit and so any extra monies or donations are usually given to a local charity. This year a donation will be made to the Bancroft Hospital in memory of Chris Emery. Riders will meet at Millennium Park in Bancroft at 8:00 a.m. for a 9:00 a.m start. You can still register by googling Hastings Highlands Hilly Hundred. The public is invited to attend the start. Listen for a full interview with Greg Cooper later this morning at the Moose.
