Bike Event Benefits Ozark Greenways


Tomorrow, the Polk County Bike Club will host a bike ride to benefit Ozark Greenways' efforts to rebuild the historic Little Sac River Bridge on the Frisco Highline Trail. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.

Tomorrow, the Polk County Bike Club will host a bike ride to benefit Ozark Greenways' efforts to rebuild the historic Little Sac River Bridge on the Frisco Highline Trail.

Arsonists burned the bridge on June 10th.

Lori Tack is program coordinator for Ozarks Greenways.

She says the fundraiser offers riders two routes.

Riders also may arrange to have a sack lunch when they reach the bridge.

All proceeds from the ride go to Ozark Greenways' campaign to raise 100 thousand dollars in 100 days.

Tack says the organization is halfway to reaching its goal by the end of September.

Even though Ozark Greenways hasn't raised all the money it needs to re-build the bridge, Tack says the project is well underway.

Tack says if there's a bright side to what happened, it's been the public show of support for the Frisco Highline Trail.

She says it's apparent that people appreciate have this kind of trail in the area.

Again, the Polk County Bike Club's bike ride is this tomorrow. There are two options...both begin at 8AM. The short ride begins at the trailhead in Wishart and the longer course begins at Bolvar Middle School. Proceeds from the event will be used to help fund the re-construction of the Little Sac River Bridge on the Frisco Highline Trail. Information on the event is available online at polkcountybikeclub.org and at ozarkgreenways.org.
