On July 23, 2018, Samaritan Ministries will host their 5thannual Tour de Llama bike event at Divine Llama Vineyards. Arbor Investment Advisors is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the event. All proceeds raised through rider registrations and sponsorships help provide food and shelter to our hungry and homeless neighbors in the Winston-Salem area.
The three bike routes are in rural Yadkin County and go through beautiful scenery with minimal traffic. Riders can choose 21, 36 and 60-mile routes that begin at 8:30 a.m. Day-of registration opens at 7:30 a.m.
“This is the first year we’ve added a 21-mile route, so we anticipate having more riders join us for this exciting event,” said Sonjia Kurosky, executive director of Samaritan Ministries.
After the ride, attendees are invited to stick around for lunch, tours, llama activities, photo opportunities, wine tastings and more on the farm.
Last year, 57 sponsors and 173 cyclists raised $21,573. Samaritan Ministries’ goal this year is $20,000. The fee is $30 per person and riders must be 18 years or older. Sponsorships are $250. Samaritan would like to thank Arbor Investment Advisors, Ken’s Bike Shop, as well as all sponsor and vendor partners for helping to plan this special day for the riders.
Active.com has also developed a four-ride package deal. Riders can pay $100 and participate in four rides that all benefit four local non-profits. The rides are Saddles and Spokes (June 2); Tour de Kale (June 16); Tour de Llama (June 23) and Operation Red Sleigh (July 21).
Divine Llama Vineyard is located at 5349 Macedonia Road in East Bend. For more information and to register as a rider or sponsor, visit samaritanforsyth.org/tour-de-llama/or contact Alex Jarrell, marketing director: [email protected] 336-448-2668.
