News: . . . From the Wheels of Hope (WOH) Ride Committee

    Hello friends,

    So the storm came through (check the news for the "derecho") and many of us are still without power and water (since Friday 6/29/12), however; not to worry dear riders, we are a resilient bunch and are getting sorted out here in Lewisburg to ensure clear roads and a safe and fun ride on the 21st. Oh, don't forget beautiful as well.

    Of course, we also have the PGA tournament, "The Greenbrier Classic", going on nearby in White Sulphur Springs this week and they need things fixed up asap so as to not hold up the Tiger as he chases Sam Snead on his home turf!

    Be assured that the WOH 2012 organizers will be ready for you and your friends/family to come ride in beautiful Greenbrier County so come on over to the "Coolest Small Town". Don't forget there's plenty for non-riding friends/family to do here in Lewisburg as well!

    AND....exciting news!! We will send out more details as our power and internet are fully restored but here's a hint ... A raffle with GREAT prizes is planned. So check out our Facebook Page for the early details. Help us get the word out ... "Like" us on Facebook!
