Bike Riding with the Camels. Seriously.

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange County, NY joined forces with the Orange County Bicycle Club on Sunday, September 16, for The Ride With the Camels, a 10-to-62-mile ride through forested ridges and rolling farmland that celebrated open space in Orange County, NY.

The event was named after a large pasture that bikers pedaled past that is filled with a herd of grazing camels. They were rescued after movie, advertising, and circus careers by the Sanctuary for Animals, and they live on the farm with hundreds of other rescued animals of different species. The hills, riders say, remind them of the camels’ humps so they saluted them as they rode by.

Proceeds from event celebrated open space in Orange County Proceeds and benefited Catholic Charities of Orange County, NY, the Orange County Land Trust, and the Sanctuary for Animals.
