9th Annual Rotary Lilac Ride
Sunday, May 26, 2024

The weather was perfect on May 26 and we had close to 200 riders taking part in the various 25, 50 and 100 km routes.  

We raised over $13,000 dollars which will all go towards the various Charities that the Rotary Club of Picton supports. This was all made possible with the support of our many volunteers and sponsors.
Foodland supplied the delicious food for the cyclists and County Water donated the water that was located at the refreshment sites along the course.

Silver Sponsors include Dougs Bikes who also had a booth set up to help with any last minute tuning or the purchase of any last minute Bicycle items.

Home Hardware was a Silver Sponsor as well.
