Bike event slated for Saturday

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

The fourth annual Tour de Monett bicycle ride, a fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, will be held this Saturday at Monett's South Park.

Monett pool passes will be given to all participants and are valid for Saturday and Sunday.

Registration, which will open at 6 a.m., is $30 on the day of the event.

The 100-mile and 62-mile rides will start at 7 a.m. followed by the 40-mile ride at 7:30 a.m.

The Flat Tire Gang is a group of friends and volunteers who work together to raise money to fight multiple sclerosis. Local businesses, such as EFCO Corporation, provide contributions.

Last year, the annual Tour de Monett brought in approximately $3,500 in sponsorships and registration fees, which was donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
