FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Group To Cycle 250 Miles Across Ohio For Non-Profit
Columbus, Ohio – June 30, 2011 – A small group of cyclists is planning to ride 250 miles from Richmond, IN to Wheeling, WV over the Fourth of July weekend to raise money for The Water Cycle Project.
The Water Cycle Project (www.WaterCycleProject.org) is a zero-overhead, non-profit organization that raises money to drill fresh water wells for impoverished communities in rural India.
Cyclists will make the daunting trek over the course of three days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with overnight stops in West Jefferson, OH and Zanesville, OH, averaging over 80 miles each day.
The route will primarily follow Historic U.S. Route 40 from the west side of the state to the east.
For more information and to follow the tour, please visit the group’s website at www.WaterCycleProject.org.
The group is available for limited interviews and media engagements in the afternoon and evening of each cycling day. Media is encouraged to contact The Water Cycle Project for further details.
The Water Cycle Project is associated with Vineyard Christian Fellowship in Grove City, OH for administrative support, and with Franklinton Cycle Works, a non-profit bicycle co-op in Columbus, OH, for logistical support.
