Teen center to ride, roast and rock on Sept. 28
MIDDLEBURY — The fourth annual Ride, Roast and Rock, an Addison Central Teens (ACT) benefit bicycle tour and pig roast for all ages, will take place on Saturday, Sept. 28, rain or shine, on the green in Middlebury. The event is a fundraiser to benefit ACT’s 94 Main teen center, which serves youth in grades 7 through 12 within the Addison Central Supervisory Union District.
There will be a choice of three bicycle routes, all beginning and ending at the Middlebury town green. The 59-mile tour via Middlebury and Brandon Gap begins at 8 a.m., the 26-mile Little City Tour that loops through Vergennes begins at 11 a.m. and the eight-mile Morgan Horse Farm Tour begins at 11:30 a.m. Registration opens a half-hour before each ride.
The celebration starts at 1:30 p.m., as participants returning from their rides join other community members to enjoy the pig roast and other delectable on the Middlebury town green, with music provided by local teen bands.
Advance registration for the bike rides is $10 for students and $25 for adults. For race-day registrations, adult fees go up to $30. Entry prices for those who attend only the pig roast are $5 for students and $10 for adults. Children 6 and younger are free.
All those who register for one of the bike rides will receive a water bottle and admission to the pig roast. Any participant who raises $100 or more will also get two extra tickets to the pig roast for friends or family.
Those interested in signing up for the Ride, Roast and Rock can register at www.addisonteens.com or pick up a registration form at the 94 Main teen center (on the lower floor of the Middlebury Town Offices), the Middlebury Bike Center, Middlebury Fitness, Skihaus, or Carol’s Hungry Mind Café.
