WHO DOES IT BENEFIT? This event, supported completely by local volunteers, is designed to benefit Macon County schools and teachers. Because of the great help given by our volunteers (namely, the Macon County Rotary, MCHS Interact Club and MCJHS Junior Interact Club), we are able to take the money raised and donate it directly to our local education program. Please help us make this year’s celebration the biggest and best ever!
SPECIAL RULES FOR THE BIKE EVENTS. Everyone participating in any bike event must wear a helmet and obey all rules of the road. You must be 12 years old, or have an adult guardian to ride the 10 mile tour. You must be 16 years of age to ride the 33 mile tour without a guardian. The Jr. Bike Rodeo (ages pre-schoool through 8th grade) is on a closed course, so there will be no traffic.
