It's that time of year.  The annual Pedal for the Pooches is just around Briggs Animal Adoption Center - Pedal for the Pooches 2012the corner.   On April 28, 2012 at 10:00 am, cyclists from far and near will be joining together to help support this wonderful facility.  The Briggs Animal Adoption Center hosts this annual event as a fundraiser to support their Charles Town, WV facility.  

The great thing about BAAC is they don't euthanize animals that show up on their doorstep.  They are an adoption center which offers housing and care for animals that are homeless.  They will take care of that pet until a "forever home" family adopts it. 

Briggs Animal Adoption Center - Pedal for the Pooches 2012I've had the privilege to participate in the bike ride for most of the previous 10 years.  It's a great first ride to the cycling season.  The course snakes its way through the WV countryside of farms and country roads.  It's a rolling hills and flat terrain ride that is comfortable to riders of just about any skill level.Briggs Animal Adoption Center - Pedal for the Pooches 2012

The ride consists of five course distances of 9, 16, 21, 30, and 35 miles.  There is a rest station at the mid-way and turn around area.  The facility also provides roadside assistance to riders along the course. 

This annual event is a great time to get out with friends and family.  The weather is typically cool, but not cold.  Be sure to sign up, and please consider throwing in a little extra to aid in their mission.

Pedal for the Pooches sounds like a great event Mike and a great way to pay it forward in the animal kingdom.

It's always a lot of fun, John.  It's typically my first outside ride each year.

Hi Mike - Great event and a worthy cause. I'm hoping we can get out on the bikes for our first ride this weekend, if the weather holds.

Anything that supports dogs is a worthy cause! I hope Pedal for the Pooches brings in a lot of money. It's a fun way to raise donations!

That sounds awesome---but I don't know how to ride a bike.  But I am sure if I were there I would be able to give back in another way.  Have fun at the event!

Thanks, Dick, Kristine and Jennifer.  They do have a run they do just ahead of this one.  They also have various fundraisers throughout the year.  This has been one of my most favored charities since I learned about them.

Pedal for the Pooches is a wonderful way to raise money for a very worthy facility.  I love shelters who do not  euthanize our dear 4 legged friends.
