The Young's Dairy Charity Bike Tour for 2010, our largest public service
event of the year, is on Saturday, July 24th and Sunday, July 25th. The
two day tour covers several Ohio counties, comprising up to 100 miles,
so a large number of ham radio operators will be needed.
The tour starts at 8:00 AM on Saturday from Young's Dairy, which is on
Highway 68, north of Yellow Springs, and extends north to Ada Ohio. The
route itself is the same as it was last year, but the route options have
changed for 2010. There are now several route options available to
various riders on both Saturday and Sunday. The longest option still
goes to Ohio Northern University in Ada on the first day, and returns to
Young's Dairy on the second day.
You can view the various route options on the Young's Dairy Bike Tour
web site at http://www.youngsdairy.com/biketour/index.html. The entire
route can be viewed at
Ham radio operators who mhave worked this event before will be happy to
know that the rest stop numbers will no longer change from Saturday to
Sunday. Rest Stop 1 on Staurday will still be Rest Stop 1 on Sunday, and
so on. The one day return routes back to Young's Dairy on Saturday will
also be shorter, so we'll be able to spend less time concentrating on
the first part of the course.
For any operators wanting to stay overnight in the dorm rooms at Ohio
Northern University in Ada, where the riders stay, I will need to know
that ASAP. For those not familiar with that option, I highly recommend
it. The dorms are extremely nice and the organizers graciously provide
them to us at no cost. Dinner and breakfast are included, and these
guys have an absolute blast up there. It's really a great and
We are in need of very many operators for this event. Please consider
coming out, if only for a portion of the day.
