Upcoming bike race to raise money for sexual assault response

Lutheran Community Services will hold the 8 Lakes Leg Aches bike ride to raise money for the Sexual Assault and Family Trauma Response Center and other programs.

The ride will be on Aug. 6 and will offer multiple routes of varying lengths. Riders can select a 15 mile, 30 mile, 45 mile, or 75 mile route. The longest route allows riders to view eight lakes: Willow, Granite, Silver, Medical, Clear, Chapman, Kepple and Fish.

Participants can ride for fun or as pledge riders who raise money through sponsorships. Last year, pledge riders raised over $74,000.

“The 8 Lakes Leg Aches bike ride is considered one of the best organized bike rides in Eastern Washington, with riders enjoying the beautiful scenery of West Spokane, Cheney and Medical Lake,” reads the website.

The race begins at the Group Health Corporate Office at 5615 W Sunset Hwy. Start times vary depending on what route riders choose. Start times can be found at http://www.lcsnw.org/8lakesride/.

Interested individuals can register online or contact Christie McKee at (509) 343-5020. McKee can also be reached via email by sending a message through http://www.lcsnw.org/mailform.asp?qID=9.
