Pedal For Project Impact

Riders who participated in the family ride pause for a group photo before heading out on the trail.

It’s been more then a week since the second annual Pedal for Project Impact and this is the first opportunity I’ve had to post some photos. But first some numbers. Sixty five riders, young and old, rode June 16. Twelve of them rode the 40- or 60-mile supported tours with 53 taking to the Glacial Lakes State Trail for the family ride. Pedal raised more than $4,500 for Project Impact, a program at Safe Avenues designed to meet the needs of children who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence.

Family tour riders leave the MinnWest Tech Campus.


Mike Morrell’s ride started well, but a flat tire meant he had to walk back to the tech campus.


Directed by volunteers and law enforcement, riders enter Glacial Lakes State Trail.


Riders prepare for the supported tours.


Long Lake Road was one of the scenic stretches of the 40- and 60-mile tours.


Two members of Tri4ever, a triathlon group, rode the 60-mile route. In this photo, they’re 10 or 12 miles from completion.
