There are three ride choices: a 64-mile metric century, a 30-mile tour, and a 10-mile family ride. The ride is organized by the Dorchester County Family YMCA.

The event supports the Dorchester YMCA Bob Brannock Endowment Fund. “Mr. Bob” was an integral part of the Y family and volunteered countless hours to help make the Y a better place.
