JCHC Family Bicycle Poker Run Event a Huge Success

A BIG Thank You to all participants and volunteers in the 1st Annual JCHC Family Bicycle Poker Run from Brookville to Summerville on the Redbank Rails to Trails. We had 50 adult riders and 20 kids ages 6-15, all having a great time.  We also had lots of food at the picnic at end of the ride in Summerville. The Tacos were more popular than the hotdogs!

Adult prize for best hand was a Trek cycling computer compliments of Planet Bike in DuBois, a gift certificate for a free tune-up from Clarion Bike & Outdoor, a free JCHC membership and a mini-combo bicycle light set. Prize for worst hand was a JCHC Scripture Rocks Park water bottle, a gift certificate for a tune-up from Mudbeard Bikes & Boards in Ridgeway, a free JCHC membership and a mini-combo bicycle light set.

Teen prizes included a backpack/water bottle set from DeMans Team Sports, and a Moonlight Drive-In package. Kids prizes, compliments of Planet Bike again, were kids’ bicycle bells sporting designs of ice cream cones, happy faces, etc., hot dog coupons, and Pittsburgh Zoo tickets from the Jeffersonian Democrat.
