The Blue Ridge Bicycle Club’s 20th annual Artie Levin Memorial Ride, a September favorite of southwest VA cyclists, has joined forces with Bike MS to become Bike MS Best of the Blue Ridge, Sept. 27-28, 2008. Artie Levin was Roanoke’s own physical fitness celebrity, television host, and newspaper columnist. He was also an avid cyclist, and dynamic BRBC member, who did a lot to promote cycling in southwest VA. Held in his honor, “The Artie” is a weekend-long fun event featuring a century ride, food, and live music. For details and to register, see the Bike MS website. Proceeds benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
