Larry's Ride 2011

SEPTEMBER 24, 2011



           (Baltimore) —  Pump up those tires and lace up those sneakers, Larry’s Ride and Run is back for its second year and will be held at Spring Meadow Farms on Saturday, September 24, 2011. Larry’s Ride and Run will continue to honor avid biker Larry Bensky who tragically lost his life while biking in 2010.
            Larry’s Ride and Run is a Bike Maryland fundraising event that raises awareness of bicyclists and bicycle safety issues.  This year’s event has added several new bike routes and a 3.6-mile run.  Following the bike rides and 3.6-mile run, celebration activities will take place including a lunch for all registered participants attending the event, including non-bikers and non-runners. All friends and family are welcome to attend, participate and enjoy the day!
            On April 6, 2010, 43-year-old Larry was struck by a car and killed while bicycling on Butler Road, near Falls Road, in Baltimore County.  Larry left behind two daughters, a wife, six brothers and many more who had the pleasure to know him.
             Proceeds from the ride go directly to advance the advocacy efforts of Bike Maryland, a non-profit dedicated to better and safer bicycling, walking and mass transit.  Help raise awareness of bicyclists and bicycle safety issues to prevent similar tragedies by celebrating Larry’s life, one mile at a time.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
