Cyclists Hit City Streets For Charity

Hundreds of cyclists from throughout the region competed in the first annual White Plains Downtown Criterium. Proceeds supported the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence/Westchester.

Hundreds of cyclists blitzed the streets of White Plains Sunday as part of the first ever White Plains Downtown Criterium.

The half-mile loup through the heart of the City's downtown featured both experienced and professional cyclists of a variety of ages. All proceeds from the race benefitted the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence/Westchester (NCADD/Westchester), which is headquartered in White Plains.

Cyclists also promoted a healthy and active lifestyle as well as a lively downtown area, said White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach.

The event featured five different races, breaking cyclists into ages, gender and experience. The top three finishers in each catagory are posted below.

Key Bank, Aqua Proof Pool Service, Deutsh Family Wine and Spirits and Bicycle World sponsored the event.

The proceeds will help the NCADD/Westchester grow its elementary school program, Joan Bonsignore, executive director of the organization said.
