Bike Tours Through Newport News, Virginia
7 Mile Fun Tour & 22 Mile Bike Tour
Together We Can “Petal” for the Cure!
Petals for the Cure was created with the goal to raise funds to help save lives which may have been lost due to breast cancer. The benefitting organization, Beyond Boobs! is a breast health, not breast cancer, organization with a focus on health and wellness. The best defense against this disease is active participation in early detection techniques and healthy lifestyles. Further, the organization supports young women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are in treatment or have completed treatment. That support includes mind, body and spirit, as all are affected throughout their journey.
So join us for a bike tour to help “petal” for the cure. There are 2 events on Saturday, October 4th, 2014. Both events beginning at 8am. A 7-mile “Fun Tour” that is great for families and a 22-mile bike tour that is for those who like a challenge. The bike tour will go throughout Newport News. Enjoy festivities at Anderson’s all day. This is a great experience for the whole family.
After meeting at Anderson’s Home and Garden Showplace, the Ride will take you through beautiful Newport News neighborhoods of tree-lined streets and gorgeous homes. In the museum district, you will pass by the Mariner’s Museum park and traverse down roads paralleling the James River. Through Hilton Village and Hidenwood, you will see some of the older areas of town and some of the trendier.
