Saturday: 500 expected for Tour de Menlo

About 500 bicycle riders from all over the Bay are expected to participate in the 10th annual Tour de Menlo bike ride on Saturday, Aug. 23, organizers said.

The ride, which starts and finishes at Menlo-Atherton High School, is a benefit for the Rotary Club of Menlo Park scholarship fund and the Almanac's Holiday Fund. The Rotary Club and the Almanac are co-sponsors.

Riders can choose from 35-, 45- and 65-mile routes, with modest elevation gains on the two shorter courses and more than 3,000-foot elevation on the 65-mile (100K) route.

Riders on the longer route go north to Belmont before turning south and heading for Portola Valley. The 35- and 45-mile routes cover much of the same terrain minus the hills.

All riders will find fully stocked rest stops and SAG support for those who need assistance out on the course. A lunch catered by Lutticken's Deli awaits riders at the finish at M-A High.

Veteran riders, please note: Due to a scheduling conflict, registration and lunch for the ride will be held outside the M-A gym, off Ringwood Avenue. Riders should park in the M-A Performing Arts Center lot, also off Ringwood.
