Cody's 'Coast to the Future Bike Tour' benefits a local community mentoring program

(Cody, Wyo.) - Bright Futures Mentoring is a local non-profit that provides a unique program for Cody kids age K-18. Each month they touch over 250 lives in a variety of programs which include one-on-one mentoring adult to child, High School mentors mentoring elementary students, Self-esteem events for 5th and 6th grade boys and girls that teach healthy relationships, and being part of community. "We believe in showing by example of how youth can pay it forward," said Jerry Hager of Cody, who serves on the Bright Futures Mentoring Board. "We have 7th and 8th grade girls returning to help with self-esteem events." She added, "All mentors are Cody volunteers.

The full riding route – totaling about 60 miles – will be out the lower South Fork Highway to the Twin Creek Trailhead. But riders can choose to go just as far – or short- a distance on the ride as they wish. Riders of all skill levels are encouraged to try out the route and enjoy the community aspect of the ride. The cost of the ride is $75 for each rider. Because of the generous donations of the ride’s community sponsors, which covered the cost of the ride, all of the registration dollars from every participant will go straight into Cody’s Bright Future’s Mentoring Program.
