Bicycling for Brough

The Belleville City Council has given its approval to the Bicycling for Brough fund-raising ride April 21-22 at Central Junior High School in Belleville, Ill.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the story about Sgt. Jon Brough, he was blinded and severely injured on Nov. 10, 2006, when he was shot in the face during a police raid to arrest a man accused of killing a Swansea, Ill., couple. Belleville residents have rallied to help Sgt. Brough and his family, and Bicycling for Brough is the newest effort to assist them.

The Touring Cyclist shop of Fairview Heights and Johnston Realty are organizing the event. The cost is $15 for individuals and $30 for families. Students will have the opportunity to collect pledges per mile for the ride. The ride will offer 4-mile, 8-mile and 30-mile routes. The shorter routes are designed for grade school students and less-experienced adults, while the long route will take more experienced bicyclists toward Millstadt.

You can find out more about the ride by contacting Touring Cyclist store manager Dawn Weber at 398-6800 or fhstaff@touringcyclist.com. Information soon should be available at Touring Cyclist's Web site, but you can sign up for the ride today through Active.com.
