The route started off at the Elks Lodge in Potsdam and included stops in North Lawrence, Waddington, Morristown, Heuvelton and Madrid.

After the ride, participants met at the Elk’s Lodge in Potsdam for a buffet dinner and raffle prizes. Approximately 47 riders participated in the event, which raised $2,370 for the Cerebral Palsy Association of the North Country.
