30 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, September 13 - September 19,1996 Port Lewes Bikers enjoy new Cape path This group of bikers from Lewes, known as the Port Lewes Bikers From Hell, took advan- tage of fair weekend weather recently to try out the new bicycle loop finished recently at Cape Henlopen State Park. They paused for some air and to enjoy the view from the Great Dune Overlook which is a spur off of the trail connecting the former Fort Meade recreation area with the main bath house parking area. They are shown here in the parking area of the Great Dune Overlook. Shown (l-r) are Roland "The Magnificent n Kaonig, Barbara "Bad A **n Porter, Marie uStiletton Rutter, Sandy rhe Chin  Matthews, Richard "Rotten Richard  Rut- tear and Joe "Machine Gun  Horowitz. The only requirement to be a member of the Port Lewes Bikers From Heir over 50. Rudder to host On Sunday, Oct. 5, traffic on Route 1 between Rehoboth and Dewey Beach will be a little out of the ordinary as a large number of two-wheeled vehicles heading south make a right turn into the Rusty Rudder. More than 1,500 cyclists are ex- pected to ride into town for the 14th Annual Patterson-Schwartz MS 150 Bike to the Bay conduct- ed by the Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Soci- ety. This is the eighth year that fin- ish line festivities will be at Rud- dertowne for cyclists completing the first half of the two-day 150- mile bike tour. Riders arriving in Dewey Beach Saturday afternoon will have the rest of the day to relax on the deck of the Rusty Rudder. While the Rudder enjoys the increased busi- ness from MS 150 participants, Director of Sales Karen Zakarian ,says it's the desire to support the MS Society that brings her organi- :ration back every year. "Owner-operator Jay Prettyman truly likes to stay involved with ais," she said. It was Prettyman's interest in Ibeing involved in the community rthat launched Ruddertowne as the IBike to the Bay's Dewey Beach Ilaeadquarters in 1989, according to 7_akarian. "It's a fun afternoon. It's only a plus to have it end at the Rusty Rudder," she said. The Rudder donates the use of Crabbers' Cove Restaurant for aturday night dinner and Sunday morning breakfast, and they do- mate personnel to provide assis- ltance to the bike tour volunteers who actually prepare meals for bikers, families and other volun- teers. Zakarian will be joined by the MS kitchen and banquet managers during the weekend to make cer- tain that everything goes smoothly for the Bike to the Bay crowd. Bike Tour Committee member Don Ellis and dozens of volun- teers will start cooking at noon Saturday, Oct. 5 for the three din- ner seatings. With the bikers in mind, a high carbohydrate pasta dinner will be served. A "skeleton" staff from the kitchen at Crabber's Cove will oversee the use of the equipment. With breakfast starting at 6:30 a.m. Sunday morning, the volun- teer kitchen crew and staff from the Rusty Rudder will be greeting the day long before the sun rises. They'll still be cleaning up after the last cyclist embarks on the 75- mile trip back to Smyrna. Money raised through Bike to the Bay helps the National Multi- ple Sclerosis Society achieve its mission of ending the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis, a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks a person's nervous system. This year marks the 50th an- niversary of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the only volun- tary health organization in the United States supporting interna- tional MS research and providing services, education and public policy for the third of a million Americans with MS and their family members. About 1,000 Delawareans with multiple sclero- sis are served through offices in Wilmington, Camden and Lewes. Registration is being taken until Sept. 26 for the Patterson- Schwartz MS 150 Bike to the Bay. The registration fee is $30 and each rider must collect a mini- mum of $150 in pledges. The ride is fully supported, with all meals and snacks provided.
