Okemo Bike Hill Climb is a great event; we enjoy hosting and providing a BBQ for our cyclists and their guests.  An awards ceremony followed the ride with medals and a congratulatory round of applause! Our field of riders comes from all over New England to compete in this 5.8 mile grueling race from Jackson Gore Area to the summit of Okemo Mountain.  We are always so proud of our local racers! 
 
Ludlow Rotary wins as well; proceeds benefit our community fund used to assist with requests of support. In the past funds have supported local chapters of Cystic Fibrosis and Multiple Sclerosis; in our community we support our food shelf, youth shelter, student needs for music festivals, National History project, drug and alcohol awareness, and literacy - to name a few. 
 
We hope to see you next year on June 24, 2017 for our annual event!
