Burlington Velo Club’s (BVC) Gold sponsor, Alamance Regional Medical Center (ARMC) has come through again. Thanks to Bob Byrd and his connection to ARMC, we have been allowed to use the Grand Oaks (LifeStyle) Center as the departure point for the 2014 Double Down 2 the Beach. Bob has played an intricate role in the development of the BVC as one of our originating members and he has maintained our partnership with ARMC since the very beginning. If you see Bob on June 7th, be sure to give him a hardy thank you.
The Double Down 2 the Beach Strava club was created so participants of the ride can socialize and track each others training efforts in preparation for this epic event. This is an open club and Strava is free to join.
We want to thank LabCorp and Mark Brecher, CMO at LabCorp, for giving a hefty $1000 donation to support the Double Down 2 the Beach ride. This money will be used towards college scholarships awarded to students in Burlington, Alamance area of North Carolina. Mark is a member of the Burlington Velo Club and has been a long time cyclist. We certainly appreciate his involvement in making this year’s Double Down 2 the Beach successful. Be sure to thank Mark when you see him during the ride on June 7th.
The 3rd annual Double Down 2 the Beach will be held on June 7th 2014. Riders should expect another, relatively flat, 200+ mile supported course to the east coast of north Carolina. The starting point will be in Burlington, North Carolina, while the destination point will remain in close proximity to Wilmington, North Carolina. Once again, the Burlington Velo Club is very excited to be putting on this fund raising event. Last year, three $1000 dollar scholarships were awarded to local high school graduates. We are hoping to raise more money this time, because we are able to support an increased number of riders. Registration will now be open to 200 riders on March 1st. Mark Your calendars. The event fills up relatively fast.
Our friends at TrySports Wilmington will be welcoming us in after our 200 mile ride to the beach.
