Harrison Park a Welcome Stop for Cycle NC
By Kelly Bledsoe
The Cycle North Carolina Mountains to Coast Ride is a 7 day, fully supported bicycle tour
that allows individuals to explore the state in a unique way by traveling along the scenic back roads. This ride showcases
many of the sites, sounds and smells that North Carolina has to offer while showing some true southern hospitality.
Last week the Central Methodist Men and Women groups of Central United Methodist Church
showcased genuine Denton hospitality to approximately 900 riders as they hosted a rest stop in Harrison Park. Members dished
out ice cream, served an assortment of homemade goodies, and participants were treated to live music by Casper and the Ghost
Riders. Riders visited with church members learning about the history of Denton and what makes our town special. Tom Bullock
of Rocky Mount took time to appreciate the sites in our community and even stopped by the Orator to have his picture made.
Thanks to all the volunteers who turned out to once again represent our beautiful town beautifully!
