Saint Andrews Camp
Jewell NY

As the Chapel bell rang, the 2nd annual Saint Andrew’s Camp Bicycle Ride began in Jewell NY along the shore of Oneida Lake. Congratulations to all who participated on Saturday, 24 August. Eighteen riders from across New York State peddled their way on a 12, 30, or 62 mile course. A great barbecue greeted the riders at the finish line. What a fun way to support the camp!

The charity ride covers a beautiful excursion in Central New York -- from Oneida Lake to Delta Lake and back. The surrounding area offers beautiful and scenic views. The Saint Andrew’s bike ride brings together seasoned cyclists, friends, camp alumni, supporters, former campers, people "in the neighborhood," and church members for fun and to raise funds in support of the camp in its mission of serving youth.

Various levels of abilities turned out for the event, from the newbie to experienced century (100-mile) riders.  Most completed the metric century, but having shorter routes allowed novices to try their hand at distance cycling.

Volunteers from Saint Peter and Paul Church in Syracuse included; Paul Kondakoff (driver of the SAG wagon), Jim McGuinness and Greg Symaniak who monitored rest stops and helped with registration. Daria York, Marti Evanoff, Valdamir Lisenko, Jay and Melody Holman put together a great post-ride barbecue. Non-parish “friends of the ride" included Gus Engbretson, who provided road and mechanical support for the riders. A special thank you to Andrew Belinski, who donated his patience and computer expertise. Syracuse Bicycle donated a gift certificate for a post-barbecue drawing and McLane, N.E. donated multiple cases of water for the event.

Representing Saint Basil Church in Watervliet NY were Marie Goikas and her son, David; Jon Zonitch traveled from Albion NY to make the ride.

You are invited to join the 3rd Annual Bike Ride in 2014.  Mark your calendar!  It will take place on the last Saturday in August. Visit SaintAndrewsCamp.org

Starting in January, you will find monthly suggestions to get yourself ready to ride by August 2014.  It's never too early to prepare and train. Good for the body ... good for the soul ... with fun and fellowship in support of a great cause. It’s a "win–win" for all!
