Tour de Heifer Bike Rides
The Tour de Heifer Dirt Road rides are set for Sunday, June 4th, 2017. The Tour de Heifer is a group of three bike rides, with the 30 and 60 mile routes drawing more experienced riders and the 15 mile route drawing less experienced riders. We expect to see 300 riders spread out over the three rides. Both the 60 mile and 30 mile routes go through Halifax. The 60 mile route comes west on Jacksonville Stage road, goes north on Josh Road (including the class 4 section), takes a left up Deer Park Road (a long climb), a right on Old County Road to Whitneyville, and then onto Brook Road and Reed Hill Road in West Halifax. Eventually the riders come back into Halifax on Butterfield Road and Green River, then going north on Moss Hollow. The 30 mile route goes up Green River Road and then north on Moss Hollow. There will be a water stop at the corner of Green River Road and Moss Hollow Road.
Halifax Community Club
The Whitingham-Halifax Lions is active in building a better community with its outreach in eyesight assistance, support for educational services, relief from food insecurity, and helping with local recreation and beautification. Fundraisers include the Hungry Lion Bike Tour each September right here in Whitingham. The Lions enjoy local support that enables the club to live up to its motto “We Serve.” The club was chartered in 1954 and meets twice monthly except during the summer.
