About This Activity

Come join us in celebration of the 12th riding of the epic Big Pencil to Big Walker METRIC Charity Ride on Saturday, June 20, 2015. Beginning in downtown Wytheville, the ride heads out through the pastoral southwest Virginia counties of Wythe and Bland, with one, two or three climbs of Big Walker Mountain.

Thanks to the generous support of our major sponsors--VHDA and Wytheville Office Supply--we are offering a free custom designed cycling jersey for the first 100 registrants for our ride. Please sign up now, and let your cycling buddies know as well.

 

Proceeds of the Big Pencil to Big Walker Charity Ride benefit Helping Overcome Poverty's Existence, Inc. (HOPE), an umbrella human services organization delivering housing, food and anti-poverty programs to the southwest Virginia counties of Wythe, Bland, Carroll, Smyth and Grayson and the city of Galax. HOPE's website is www.wythehope.org.

You can also support HOPE's mission by participating in our fundraising campaign at https://fundraising.active.com/event/12thAnnualBigPenciltoBigW.

If we meet our minimum online goal of $2,067 (the equivalent of the elevation gain of climbing the mountain once), all participating fundraisers will be eligible for a drawing for a $200 gas card. If we raise $3,281 (the equivalent of the elevation gain of climbing the mountain twice), all fundraisers become eligible for a drawing for a $300 gas card. If we raise $5,003 (the equivalent of the elevation gain of climbing the mountain three times), all fundraisers become eligible for a drawing for a $500 gas card.
