Saturday, July 9 * Fireweed Bicycle Race Across Alaska. Our Lions provide food and refreshments at the 25 mile checkpoint. Precedes go to youth sporting organizations from Anchorage to Valdez, including the camp for blind and visually impaired kids: Campabilities. Contact Lion Jim or Bob to Help out. They will pick up checkpoint food from the Fireweed organizers right after our Friday Lions Lunch, and head to the aid station. The aid station is located at MP 143.7, and it will be open from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturday, as waves of cyclists come through needing refueling. Expect as many as 800 cyclists. Come help out at the aide station. Bring your camper, a tent, a find local accommodations. Driving up early Saturday morning is also an option, a three hour drive, I believe.
