The proceeds go to benefit Children Miracle Network Hospitals, Blake said.

Here, Walker, in the black shorts, and 10 of the riders make the last turn off North Trenton into the City Hall parking lot. Bike Week events are scheduled daily. A trail planning forum, during which residents get their say about where bike paths should be, is scheduled for noon Tuesday at the Historic Fire Station.

TUCSON, Ariz. — Why not us? That was the mantra Louisiana Tech’s golf team lived by at the Conference USA Championship when the Bulldogs, then ranked 140th in the country, upended No. 38 UAB in the championship match for the school’s first conference title in 36 years.
That same mantra — taken from the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary “Four Days in October” — continues in the southwest American desert as the NCAA Regionals begin play Monday morning at The Gallery Golf Club in Tucson.
Tech opened play at 10:15 a.m. today paired with Georgia State and North Texas.
