DERBY â€“ An inspirational idea by Anthony Moccia and Heidi Myers to create a new fundraiser for the Mary Wright Halo Foundation has led to instant success. A 60-mile bicycle ride through six Orleans County towns, 40 miles of which are on dirt roads, drew roughly 250 enthusiastic participants. Another 100 registered.
The event took place on Saturday, and judging by the successful debut of this cycling race, expect a second annual race next year.
