The two other rides follow the same route, but the 75-kilometer ride will break off after the shore- line and the 25-mile ride after portions of the Connecticut River. There will also be a Public Safety Mountain Bike Com- petition (Registration: 11:45 a.m. Start: 1 p.m.) in which law enforcement officials ride courses that showcase mounts and dismounts, technical riding skills and the ability to maneuver around challenging obstacles. Since 1969, SOCT has been changing lives through
