Cyclists take off from the Jeff May Complex Saturday morning for the inaugural Bike for Kicks event.

About a hundred cyclists from all over the southeast descended on Greenwood Saturday morning for the inaugural Bike for Kicks event, a fundraiser for the YMCA and the Lander University men’s soccer team.

Cyclists gathered at the Jeff May Complex to start their rides Saturday morning. There were serious cyclists, families and even a few skateboarders at the event to help raise money for the YMCA and Lander soccer. Three rides were offered: six miles, 30 miles and a metric century ride, which is 62.5 miles.

The event featured more than the average cycling event. There was entertainment following the event and an open mic time. Riders could be seen hanging out after they returned from their ride enjoying all the Jeff May Complex has to offer. By all accounts, the event was a success.

“I think, for the first event, it turned out better than we expected,” said Richard Senatore, who organized the event. “Obviously, you always want to get more numbers, but we also realize that at a first event you’ve got to get your name out there.”

Lander men’s soccer coach Van Taylor agreed with Senatore.

“It’s been an outstanding day, all the way around,” Taylor said. “We have been blessed with great support from the Greenwood community. For a first event, our first time around, there were a lot of unknowns. We have been well pleased with how the event has turned out.”

The YMCA will be presented with a check on Oct. 16 at the Lander men’s soccer game.
