A group of us have been monitoring the weather forecast.

At this time, the Charles Finney Memorial Ride is GOING AHEAD.

It should be dry at the start of the ride, but rain is forecast to be moving in about 10:30/11:00 am.  Due to this, it has been decided to cancel the 63 mile route, to allow riders to remain closer to Memphis in case of a sudden change in the weather. 

There is the option of doing an additional loop from Firestone Park to the General Store and back which is an approximate 15 mile loop.

** Design subject to minor alterations

Our goal is to promote bicycling as a lifelong exercise that can be an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.

As in past years, we are teaming with the Church Health Center to promote healthy lifestyles and to raise $2500 dollars for the Church Health Center.

This amount is the un-reimbursed cost to operate the clinic for a day.  Will you help us continue to provide this level of support?

The clinic provides quality, affordable healthcare for working, uninsured people and their families.

Not riding?  We would love for you to volunteer!  You can earn VIP points that can be used towards MHBC merchandise, future rides and even your MHBC membership!
