A fundraising event to support Helping Overcome Poverty's Existence, Inc.
The Big Pencil to Big Walker Charity Ride
(formerly the Big Walker Century Ride),
is a fundraising bike ride through the country lanes and scenic byways of
southwest Virginia. The ride begins in downtown Wytheville at the iconic
Wytheville Office Supply "Big Pencil" before
heading out of town toward Big Walker Mountain. The ride offers four
recreational routes suitable for short and century riders. Full century (100
miles-3 climbs), metric century (62 miles-2 climbs) and a 45-mile route (1
climb) are available as well as
30-mile fun ride (no climb) suitable for all ages.
THANK YOU to our 2013 BWCR riders! Click
here for the ride results.
Riders can also participate in the BWCR
fundraising campaign. If we meet our minimum online goal of $2,067 (the
equivalent of the elevation gain of climbing Big Walker once), all participating
fundraisers will be eligible for a drawing for a $200 gas card. If we raise
$3,281 (the equivalent of the elevation gain of climbing the mountain twice),
all fundraisers become eligible for a drawing for a $300 gas card. If we raise
$5,003 (the equivalent of the elevation gain of climbing the mountain three
times), all fundraisers become eligible for a drawing for a $500 gas card. Join
the fun and help us too!
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. Click
