Come rain or shine, many Lake County people are primed to support a good cause. Such as the Mission Mountain Family Pedal to Plate.

The popular event was revived this year after a four-year hiatus. The bicycle ride in the rain began and ended at the Boys & Girls Club of the Flathead Reservation and Lake County on Highway 93 in Ronan.

The cruise courses headed south from the Boys & Girls Club. There were 1-mile and 3-mile courses to traverse — at a leisurely pace. From ages toddler to elderly, there were nearly 40 bike riders, and even some walkers, for the Pedal to Plate. Those who did not have a bike were given a pre-owened one — free — to take home, along with a protective helmet and reflective gear. Everyone who completed one of the courses got a free lunch, complements of Pedal to Plate and generous local event sponsors.

“People really enjoyed it,” said organizer Janet Sucha. “It was the right crowd for the day. They were going home with a bike they needed. We gave away eight bikes.”

Well-cared-for pre-owned bikes and the new helmets were donated by community members, businesses and organizations. Some of them came from grants received by other organizations.

“We had a lot of help from the community,” Sucha said. “This is our gift back to the community ... It was a health day as well as a bike day.”
