LILAC RIDE 2022
 
A beautiful day for the 7th Annual Lilac Ride in Prince Edward County. The 2022 Lilac Ride is in memory of Jim Barkman.

Members of the Rotary Club of Picton greeted 237 cyclists early this morning and the riders began their choice of 100km, 50km or 25km routes through the beautiful countryside.  

Proceeds to support Back the Build, Ukraine support and other charities. A big thank you to all the sponsors, cyclists and volunteers!
