Bike Maryland to hold second 'Larry's Ride'
Bike Maryland will hold its second "Larry's Ride and Run" Sept. 24 in memory of Larry Bensky, a bicyclist who was killed last year while pedaling through a semi-rural area of northern Baltimore County.
The Saturday event, which will last from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., will raise money for Bike Maryland's advocacy efforts for bicycle safety. Bensky's death April 6, 2010 on Butler Road, helped provide some of the impetus for the final passage of a 3-foot buffer bill that was adopted by the General Assembly that year. The 43-year-old Bensky, who was struck by a passing car, left a wife and two daughters.
The event will include rides of 63, 35 and 15 miles as well as a 3.6-mile run. The 63-mile event departs Spring Meadow Farms in Upperco at 7:30 a.m., the 35-mile ride at 9:30 a.m. and the shorter ride and run at 10:30.
The cost for advance registration is $34 for bike riders, $43 the day of the race. For runners and other participants, the cost is $20 in advance and $25 at the farm. 15513 Hanover Pike.
