Mark your ride calendars for Saturday, September 19, 2015.

Pedal the Petrified
Spectacular views await riders in the third annual Pedal the Petrified fundraising tour ride through the Petrified Forest National Park, sponsored by the nonprofit NPC Friends and Family organization, on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015. For registration and additional details, visit www.npc.edu/pedal4scholarships.

The third annual Pedal the Petrified, a non-competitive cycling tour of Petrified Forest National Park, will be presented by Northland Pioneer College Friends and Family – www.npcfriendsfamily.org.

This is an exclusive opportunity, limited to only 200 riders, to enjoy a supported ride for all levels and capabilities. The event features a choice of both 36- and 60-mile routes, with stops for food and water approximately every five miles.

The Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert are breathtaking, so the ride is a unique experience. This is not a race, but a non-competitive tour of the national park. There are many opportunities to stop at scenic overlooks and information markers to learn about the area and take photos.

The $80 registration fee includes entrance to the national park, a ride tee shirt and cap and all refreshments and support services, including a shuttle for 36-mile riders and their bikes to return to their vehicles.

All proceeds support student scholarships at Northland Pioneer College, the only comprehensive community college serving all of Navajo and Apache counties in northeastern Arizona.

Register early to join us as one of the select group of 200 riders to experience this exceptional cycling opportunity! Just go to www.npc.edu/pedal4scholarships to register, learn more, and see photos of last year’s ride!
