Second Annual Larry's Ride and Run to Raise Bicycle Safety Awareness
(Baltimore) — Pump up those tires and lace up those sneakers, Larry’s Ride and Run is back for its second year and will be held at Spring Meadow Farms on Saturday, September 24, 2011. Larry’s Ride and Run will continue to honor avid biker Larry Bensky who tragically lost his life while biking in 2010.
Larry’s Ride and Run is a Bike Maryland fundraising event that raises awareness of bicyclists and bicycle safety issues. This year’s event has added several new bike routes and a 3.6-mile run. Following the bike rides and 3.6-mile run, celebration activities will take place including a lunch for all registered participants attending the event, including non-bikers and non-runners. All friends and family are welcome to attend, participate and enjoy the day!
On April 6, 2010, 43-year-old Larry was struck by a car and killed while bicycling on Butler Road, near Falls Road, in Baltimore County. Larry left behind two daughters, a wife, six brothers and many more who had the pleasure to know him.
Proceeds from the ride go directly to advance the advocacy efforts of Bike Maryland, a non-profit dedicated to better and safer bicycling, walking and mass transit. Help raise awareness of bicyclists and bicycle safety issues to prevent similar tragedies by celebrating Larry’s life, one mile at a time.
