100th Anniversary Bike Ride In Planning Stages

In October 1917, Gene Hepting and "Abbie" Budd rode their bicycles from Sacramento to Lake Tahoe in 17 hours and 29 minutes.  One hundred years later, El Dorado County resident Jeff Barker  is planning to celebrate that ride with a yet-to-be-defined event in the September/October time frame.  Barker presented the history of the ride and planning details at the January meeting of the Bike Friendly 50 Committee.
