100 miles over 3 days

100 miles over 3 days

 

That would be biking miles.

As in bicycle, not the stuff with motors.

The ride is called the Scarnati/Cawley 100 -- as in Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati and Lieutenant Gov. Jim Cawley -- and it's now becoming somewhat of an unofficial kickoff to the fall legislative season.

The bike ride, started by Scarnati three years ago, raises money for three children's hospitals in Pennsylvania, and calls on riders to bike from Gettysburg to the lieutenant governor's residence in Annville - or 100 miles - over three days. This year, about $150,000 has been raised.

Day 1 was today, and the ride will run through Sunday.

It is said that riders of all fitness levels are welcome, although a source tell us there are more than a few hills. Helmets are a must. Aleve is optional.
