A beautiful day met the riders in the First Annual 1000 Islands Cycling Tour, sponsored by the Tibbett
Point Lighthouse Historical Society. The lighthouse provided both the starting and ending point of the
Blue skies, temperature in the mid-60's, with a slight breeze awaited the riders on July 7th. It was perfect
weather. The nearly nine mile, leisurely trip went through the beautiful scenery throughout the Town and
Village of Cape Vincent, as well as along the St. Lawrence river. There was a scavenger hunt that
highlighted the historical spots along the route for those participants wishing to play.
After the ride, tee shirts were handed out to the riders along with a goodie bag. A box lunch was served to participants and pleasant music was provided by Gary Walts for all those gathered at the lighthouse.
