Community events moving full speed ahead
By Raymore Journal staff
The day started chilly but warmed up once the rubber of more than a hundred bicycle tires hit the pavement at Dave’s Bike Shop for the third annual Crankin’ Into Spring community bike ride and event.
On the morning of Saturday, April 9, dozens of cyclists embarked on a 13-, 27- or 63-mile journey through north Cass County. Starting and ending at Dave’s Bike Shop located at Highway 58 and Pine St., many cyclists took a scenic route to Peculiar Winery before heading back to food, games and live music performed by The Heat.
The Raymore Journal sponsored this year’s Crankin’ Into Spring event. Other sponsors include:
• Balance Point Heating and Cooling
• The Source
• Community Bank of Raymore
• The Lofts at Foxridge
• Mr. Handyman of Raymore
• Athletico Physical Therapy
• Country Club Bank
Also present at the event were Chick-fil-A, Cycling Kansas City, Shivers Ice House, Trek and Tricombe.
Meanwhile at Memorial Park, some may have spotted a unicorn. Several small children showed up for Raymore’s Unicorn Day while adults (and some children) were biking around town.
In addition to a reading of a unicorn book, face painting, cupcakes and a “Stuff ‘n’ Fluff” unicorn station, children also got the chance to hang out with a “real” unicorn.
Unicorns and bicycles. All in one day in Raymore. Spring is certainly here!
