Fast and the Fiorini
Come join us in celebration of the epic Fast and the Fiorini, (named in memory of our great local cycling supporter, Ian Fiorini) Formerly known as the Big Pencil to Big Walker Charity Ride – Proceeds benefit HOPE, an umbrella human services organization delivering housing and anti-poverty programs to the southwest Virginia counties of Wythe, Bland, Carroll, Smyth and Grayson and the City of Galax. The ride begins near downtown Wytheville and the iconic Wytheville Office Supply “Big Pencil” before heading out through the pastoral counties of Wythe and Bland. There are various routes of 7.5, 32, 44, or 62 miles designed for beginner and avid cyclists, the ride can accommodate up to 200 cyclists. There is a KOM timed ascent of the first climb of Big Walker, with several prizes awarded. This is a fully supported ride with rest stops with refreshments conveniently located to give legs and lungs a break.
Thanks to the generous support of major sponsors, they are again offering a custom designed cycling jersey for all registrants for our ride.
