Registration open for July 9 bike ride
Registration is open for the Tour of Putnam community bike ride, which returns on Sunday, July 9, with three road routes of varying difficulty that start and end at Memorial Park in Carmel. The race is hosted by Pawling Cycle & Sport.
The cost is $35 at bikereg.com or $40 on the day of the ride, which will take place rain or shine. A kids’ loop and mountain bike loop will be set up in the park. Admission is $10, including food and music.
The first route is a 14-mile loop for all levels of riders, and the second covers 26 miles that mimics Sybil Ludington’s ride when she awoke the local militia to counter attack the British at Danbury. The third is a 62-mile or metric century loop around the county.
