Tour de Menlo fundraising ride set for Aug. 17

Submitted by the Rotary Club of Menlo Park.

Peninsula cyclists are gearing up for the 15th annual Tour de Menlo Scholarship Ride, which offers three Peninsula routes for cyclists of all abilities, along with typically good weather, great food, and plenty of SAG support for those who need it. This year's ride is set for Saturday, Aug. 17.

Riders have their choice of 65-, 46- and 35-mile routes, all well-marked and beginning at Menlo-Atherton High School on Saturday. After taking different routes from the start, all riders eventually will head south on Stevens Creek Road to the final rest stop at Madrone Park, where they can rest and enjoy refreshments before heading back to Menlo-Atherton High School for a relaxing lunch in the courtyard.

The ride is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation and The Almanac. All proceeds are used to support Rotary scholarships, numerous other Rotary Foundation projects, and The Almanac's Holiday Fund drive, which contributes more than $150,000 a year to 10 local nonprofits.

The 65-mile route is by far the most popular, taking riders up to Belmont and the first rest stop on Polhemus Road. Then, after climbing up to the bike bridge, riders head south to Ca
