The Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce, Bluffton Family Recreation & CG Pro Bike cooperated with the sponsorship of the event.  The first year goal was to attract 100 plus participants…the goal was achieved with 101 registering. The event offered short bike routes for family interested in biking together all the way to a 100-mile route for experienced riders and ending at the Bluffton Buckeye Park. The ride is a fund-raiser for the development of a pathway system through and around the Village of Bluffton. The ride raised a net total of $1,812.77 for the  Bluffton pathway projects.
