Background on Reid's Ride:

Now in its 13th year, Reid's Ride is a true North Shore event where participants travel at their own pace along the town and country roads of Essex County from Lynnfield to Gloucester, Massachusetts. This nationally recognized annual 28-mile fundraiser ride is perfect for all ages and abilities because it's not a race - it's a ride - and participants are encouraged to ride according to their ability.

Proceeds from Reid’s Ride support programs designed to improve the prognosis and treatment of adolescents and young adults with cancer. These programs attack AYA Cancer on four fronts: Basic Research, Improved Access to Clinical Trials, Specialized Clinical Care During and After Treatment, and Medical Education.

If you or your spouse don't want to limit the exercise just to the kids, you are welcome to join the LMG team and participate in the ride! (Don't worry if you are a bit intimidated and haven't been on a bike in years - the others on the team feel the same way! And don't worry if you don't have a bike - bike rentals are available and will be dropped off at the start of the race and picked up at the end. There goes that excuse...Finish by 11:30 and you still have the afternoon to cool off at the beach. You can do this and will be glad you did)!

Go to www.ReidsRide.org for more information, to join the Lynnfield Mothers Group team, and to learn more about Reid Sacco, the young man that inspired Reid's Ride. Register before June 1st for a $25 discount on your ride registration fee.
