Lions Clubs International is the largest service club in the world with nearly 1.5 million members in 45,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographic regions. The Cheyenne Sunrise Lions Clubwas founded in December of 1973. For the past 28 years, our major fund raiser has been the Ride for Sight. Our major sponsor for this event is the Cheyenne Eye Clinic. Each year 175-200 riders participate. The event has raised over $12,000 each year for Lions community service projects (click to see beneficiaries).
The Ride for Sight itself begins on Sunday, Aug. 8, with a continental breakfast at 6:00 a.m. at the North Cheyenne Community Park. Riders will have their choice of several options for 10, 20 and 50 miles plus the full century or the metric routes for courses of 50 and 100 kilometers. Needless to say, you can ride any distance you desire by just turning around at your own convenience.
Riders will find rest stops approximately every 10 miles featuring drinks, fruit, snacks and energy foods, plus toilet facilities. Wrap up the day with a post-ride lunch which will be available until the final rider has cleared the course. Even if you are running really late, we'll package a meal for you!
The Ride for Sight is fully supported with sag wagons, roving mechanics and HAM radio assistance. The route is carefully patrolled and each rider's progress is monitored.
And, it wouldn't be the Ride for Sight without the complimentary commemorative T-shirt, water bottle, meal tickets, and a variety of merchandise prizes! Packets can be picked up Friday August 6, from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Rock on Wheels (900 E. Lincolnway); Saturday, August 7 from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. at the Bicycle Station (2634 Dell Range Blvd.); or Sunday morning at the registration table in the North Cheyenne Park.
Please Remember - Helmets are Mandatory and all riders must start their return to the park by 12:00 noon!
