The 13th  Annual Old Greenwich-­Riverside Community Center Mother’s Day Bike Ride is set for Sunday, May 10,  from  8:30 to 11:30am. The event is sponsored by Ellington  Management  Group. Proceeds from the event will benefit the OGRCC  Scholarship  Fund.

The 6-­mile ride begins at Old Greenwich  Elementary School on Sound Beach Avenue  in Old Greenwich, circles Tod’s Point  and ends  at the Old Greenwich Elementary  School. In addition, there  will be  a 1-­mile  Kid’s Ride and beginners kick bike ride as well as bike safety program.

As  a result of Ellington’s sponsorship,  new  elements  have  been  added  to  the  day  including:

  • Two BMX stunt bike shows from pro stunt team Wheels N Motion
  • Kids craft area to make Mother’s Day cards
  • Food trucks for getting brunch for Mom
  • Flowers for Mom
  • Personal trainers for yoga and stretching  pre-­ and  post-­rides

“We’ve been in Old  Greenwich for over 20  years  and  are  long-time supporters of  both  OGRCC and Neighbor to Neighbor,” said  Ellington CEO Michael Vranos.

“The Mother’s Day Bike  Race brings everyone in Old Greenwich together to create  a  greater sense of community while  at the  same  helping  our  neighbors in need.”

While  Ellington and Neighbor to Neighbor will be collecting  food  donations on‐site  for the local food pantry, the local Mother’s Day Movement group will raise awareness and educate people  about the  challenges faced by mothers around the  globe.

Online  registration  is  open  at  www.myogrcc.org.  Cost is  $10  for  adults, $5 for  children under 12; and $25 for the whole family.
