Pedal Harder 2015—an annual community bike ride which raises money for worthy causes—will be held on September 12, starting at Lancaster Church of the Brethren, and all funds raised will benefit Nepal Earthquake Relief, via Skychasers Charitable Foundation. The 60-mile ride begins at 8 a.m., and the 25-mile ride, 10-mile ride and 5k walk begin at 10 a.m. Rehydration, refueling and remembering will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Tellus360, in downtown Lancaster.

The event remembers and honors Glen Lapp, who was finishing up a two-year post volunteering in Afghanistan when he and his team of nine other medical camp technicians were ambushed and killed in 2010. Three passions were very close to his heart: he sought to help meet the needs of those less fortunate, especially in developing countries; he had an unquenchable thirst for adventure; and he was constantly on a quest for wisdom and knowledge.

Registration available online or on the day of event. Cost: $25; children under 18 ride for free. Start/finish location: 1601 Sunset Ave., Lancaster. Tellus360 location: 24 E. King St., Lancaster. For more information, call 717-682-5265 or visit PedalHarderRide.com.
