Bicycle ride to raise college scholarships

June 17, 2014 

King of the Summit will challenge riders of all skill levels with a combination of hills and rolling terrain in and around Lee’s Summit.

The ride will start and end July 12 at Unity Village and include routes of 52, 40 and 20 miles. The 50 mile course will include 9 hills with plenty of "bite," while the other routes will include fewer hills and more rolling terrain. 

The course will be very well marked and patrols of volunteers and roving support vehicles on course, as well as fully stocked rest stops. Additionally, continental breakfast before the ride, lunch afterwards, a great goody bag, and post-ride massages will make King of the Summit a great day in the saddle.

King of the Summit, formerly Rotary Ride, is presented by The Rotary Club of Lee’s Summit and sponsor Pinnacle Bank. Proceeds raised through sponsorship and registration fees will fund collegiate scholarships that the club presents to seven graduating high school students each year.
