The fourth annual Five in 50 starts in Rushville and includes 12-mile, 24-mile, and 50-mile routes. The 50-mile route will take bicycle riders through five historic covered bridges and five additional Rush County towns (Milroy, Moscow, Gowdy, Homer, and Arlington).
Proceeds from the ride will be directed to the Rush County United Fund https://www.rcuf.org and for the preservation of the Rush County Covered Bridges and other historical sites.
The "FIVE in 50" is the brainchild of David Willkie, as a way to honor his late mother, Virginia, who was an avid Rush County bicyclist. The grandson of Wendell Willkie, David is the principle of Willkie Ventures, a specialty finance company based in Rushville. He is a former staff member for former U.S. Senator Richard G. Lugar. David is an endurance athlete and bicyclist.
