Beneath an overcast sky with a cool breeze, 166 riders took part Saturday morning in the 26th annual Vernon Burnin’ Bike Ride co-sponsored by the Vernon Jaycees and Vernon Optimist Club.
“It was a great turnout, great weather, definitely a success, and we’re already looking forward to next year,” Si Schur, Ride director, said.
Schur said everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
“There were no problems. Everything went smoothly.”
Schur also thanked all the volunteers who assisted with the event.
“We appreciate everyone’s help,” he said.
Riders came from all over Texas and Oklahoma and even as far away as Colorado to take part in the event.
In addition to the Vernon Burnin’ a Mighty Kids Ride was held on the Vernon College parking lot. Receiving medals were Kason Villegas, Cadence Roper and Jerald Gray.
The Ride, which offered four routes across the county, started at 7:30 a.m. from the Vernon College south parking lot and concluded around noon with prizes awarded in the individual categories to the top riders as riders and spectators relaxed beneath the college campus trees to enjoy food and visiting after the event.
