The Dehydrator: High school band raises money with bike ride

DUNCAN, Okla._Despite the sweltering heat, some people are planning to ride in the 25th annual Dehydrator bike ride Saturday in Duncan.

Riders can choose routes starting at 10 miles all the way up to 80 miles. Luckily, stops will be in place about every 10 miles for riders to grab some water and snacks if needed.

The Duncan High School Band Boosters Organization puts on the event to help raise money for scholarships, road travel and instruments for the high school band. The Dehydrator coordinator Kent Collins says 400 bike riders have signed up to take off from the Simmons Center at 7:00 a.m.

"As it grows, my goal is to get it up to 2,000 riders. At that point it would really help out the community," Collins said.

Collins says riders can still sign up, even up until the start time, but there will be a $5 late charge. You can register at the Simmons Center or online at www.thedehydrator.org.
