MAY 3-4 SWING, PEDAL, ROAR UPDATE: “100 mile gran fondo canceled”  –  register now for 15 & 40 mile bicycle ride(s).  THANK YOU Pat & Bonnie Moore(& New Breed) for helping RUPERT ROAR!

Please note:

We are offering the 15 mile and 40 mile courses for this inaugural Rupert’d Kids Ride.  

Regretfully, lack of sufficient gran fondo registrations has forced us to make the painful decision to pull that event from this year’s schedule of activities.  With more time and people this will be a goal for next year!  

Invitation to Ride:

“Come join us as we bring Rupert’s Kids to Shelby County!”

“We’d like to personally thank each of you for participating in this first of its kind event with us. This ride is so much more than a bicycle race, it is an opportunity to make a difference in the community and bring awareness to the sport of cycling in Indiana.”

“It’s a social experience on two wheels for us all to share. It’s a physical challenge on some level for each rider.”

“I hope you love this event and join us as it gains momentum each year. Thank you again for your support.”

–Rupert Boneham
