The Lenoir Rotary Club has made Cycle to Serve its principal fundraiser because over our first five years, we have learned that Rotarians and cyclist have a lot in common and are truly helpful to others. Riders who are also Rotarians know about the Rotary Four Way Test and number four is “of the things we think, say or do…is it beneficial to all concerned.”

Past Cycle To Serve sponsors also know that their sponsorship is beneficial to themselves and the Lenoir Rotary Club. Here’s how:
