Rolling Tour gears up for Saturday

GREENSBURG — In wrapping up the 2012 Decatur County Family YMCA Tree City Rolling Tour, YMCA Fitness Coordinator Deena Hamer was already thinking ahead, anticipating more riders for the 2013 Tour. “We look forward to an even bigger Tour in 2013,” she said at the time.

Eighty-four riders participated in 2012, and if Hamer’s 2013 numbers hold up, she’ll add 13 riders that total come Saturday.

“We are up to 97 riders this year,” Hamer said, “up from 84 last year.”

As with last year’s Tour, this year’s event will start and end for all riders at Greensburg’s Rebekah Park. Lunch will be waiting for the riders as they finish one of three courses: A 13-mile course, a 30-mile course and a 62-mile course.

The Y’s official event flier describes the 13-mile course as a “nice country ride,” with a course that’s “mostly flat.” The 30-mile course, which travels around Lake Santee, is described as “mostly flat with some hills,” while the flier characterizes the 62-mile course as “very hilly” and scenic.

Lunch will consist of pork tenderloin sandwiches, hamburgers, pasta salad, chips, fresh homemade cookies and brownies, and drinks. During the ride itself, water and snacks will be available to riders at start and finish and at various points along the routes, Hamer said.

“There will be bike tune ups provided by the Bicycle Station in Columbus,” Hamer added, “and massages available to help the riders recover from sore, tight muscles. Lake Santee Ladies Club is providing mini sandwiches and cookies for the Lake Sag Stop and for the Hamburg Catholic Church Sag stop.”

Additionally, the Kiwanis and Lake Santee Scout troop will provide fresh fruit, while the Beach Front Grill at the Lake will provide fresh fruit, finger sandwiches, and drinks, according to Hamer.

All participants will also receive a free commemorative tee-shirt.
