Hundreds of cyclists are expected for Lake Norman's 14th annual Polar Bear Ride on Jan 14.
The Rocky River Road Club sponsors the half- and full-metric century bicycle rides through North Mecklenburg and the Lake Norman area.
Both rides start and finish at Ingersoll-Rand on Beaty Street in Davidson. Registration is at 8:30 a.m., and the rides at 10 a.m.
Cost is $20 if registered in advance and $25 on the day of the ride. Minors ride free with a parent.
The entry cost includes Jersey Mike's subs, hot soup and hot chocolate. The first 200 riders to register will receive a cycling cap and goody bag from sponsors. Door prizes will also be given away.
Vehicles will cruise the course to support and transport weary riders back to the start. On-site support will be provided by The Cycle Path and Cool Breeze Cyclery.
Part of the ride proceeds will benefit the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson. Joe Marusak.
