Support the rec path like hundreds did on Sunday

Neither the cool temps nor the occasional raindrops under cloudy skies dampened the spirits of the riders at the inaugural Bob Guthrie Memorial Ride on Sunday. The profits from the ride will go towards the completion of the Swan Mountain Rec Path.

With more than 400 participants, the day was deemed a huge success due to the efforts of ride chairmen, Bob Faucett and Erin Kneedler. They, along with their committee heads, organized a first-class ride throughout Summit County in memory of Bob Guthrie, a local physician who died this past winter. Dr. Guthrie had worked tirelessly towards raising funds for the path.

Local merchants, professional physical therapists and restauranteurs extended a generous hand in providing all of the items necessary to make this an appealing event for all ages. Along with the various ride choices, the food, prizes, goodie bags and overall fun added up to a super event, which will only grow in the coming years.

Whether you‚re a walker, cyclist or outdoor enthusiast it’s time for all of Summit County residents, Front Range visitors and out-of-state guests to step forward to support this effort to complete the path.

Everyone’s safety is the driving force behind this project.
