Record field rides in 10th Dam to Dam

Rain couldn’t stop a record field of bike enthusiasts from traveling Wabash County roads during the 10th annual Dam to Dam Century Ride on Sunday.

Riders, dressed in colorful outfits and on a variety of two-, three- and four-wheel bicycles, began leaving the Wabash County YMCA shortly before 8 a.m. on one of six marked routes throughout the county. They began returning before noon, depending on the route which were 15, 32, 50, 62, 80 and 100 miles long.

There were 747 registered riders in this year’s field.

Event organizer Christine Flohr was pleased with the event and the record field.

“Even though we’ve got some rain, because we don’t have a lot of wind and it’s not a torrential downpour, rain isn’t necessarily bad,” she said. “It’s not the most comfortable to ride in, but because we don’t have the wind, that makes it bearable.”
