More than 500 riders turn out for Tour de Menlo

More than 500 bicycle riders from all over the Bay Area participated in the 10th annual Tour de Menlo bike ride on Saturday, Aug. 23, organizers said.

"We had a great turnout and beautiful weather," said Tour de Menlo co-chair Tom Gibboney.

Proceeds from the ride, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation and the Almanac, will be used to support need-based scholarships for local high school students and the Almanac Holiday Fund, which contributes to 10 nonprofit agencies.

Mr. Gibboney attributed the ride's success to 25 Rotary Club members who got up early Saturday morning to get riders on the road by 7 a.m.

Riders chose 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.

The ride started and finished at Menlo-Atherton High School, where lunch was catered by Lutticken's Deli.
