  Donations:

As we do for all of our rides, we find a worthy cause to support that is important to the host area.  For the St. Patrick’s Day Ride, we asked the staff at Herb Parsons Lake to tell us what is near and dear to their hearts.   Each year, HPL hosts a Youth Fishing Rodeo.  They have asked that any funds our members donate be designated for that event.  You may not realize that HPL is TOTALLY funded through the sale of fishing permits, lake access permits, and proceeds from the small general store located at the park.  They get no funds from the federal, state, or local governments.  That is one reason the fishermen at HPL get kind of frustrated with bike events that fill up the parking places and take over the facilities making it difficult for them to access the lake or use the facilities.  We want to be good partners with HPL.  Cyclists use this park all year long, and we all benefit tremendously from its location, particularly its rest rooms! 

 

This is a $5 ride…. which means we make just enough to cover our costs for the ride itself.  We are committed to maintaining these $5 rides for the benefit of our members, so please consider making a donation to benefit the Youth Fishing Rodeo when you register.  We want to show everyone at HPL that we are good neighbors, and we want to be good stewards of the park. 

 
  Parking:  Due to the number of cyclists expected for the St Patricks Day Ride, we would ask all of our members to please follow the directions of the parking assistants at HPL and park in the designated areas.  This will allow other visitors to the park who are not cyclists to be able to park safely whilst using HPL.  A map will be included shortly to indicate where members can park.

 
  Restrooms:  Due to the number of cyclists expected for the St Patricks Day Ride, we would ask all of our members to please use the porta potties that will be situated near the restrooms at HPL.  This will allow other visitors to the park who are not cyclists to be able to use the facilities.
