Ride for Bryce pedaling through Lancaster in May

Bicyclists participating in the fifth annual Ride for Bryce on May 7 will experience a different route through the village and town of Lancaster, village trustees were told Monday night.

Anne Farmer, secretary for the Bryce Buchholz Memorial Fund, appeared before the Village Board to request assistance with traffic control from the fire and police departments.

Fire Chief James S. Volpe expressed concern with the 38 intersections the bicyclists cross during the ride. He suggested the participants be escorted through the village streets by first responders who would be stationed at the front and rear of the pack.

"That saves us from covering all intersections," Volpe said.

The event will honor the memory of Bryce Buchholz, a Lancaster Middle School student who was struck and killed by a drunken driver on May 3, 2012 as he rode his BMX bike on Lake Avenue.

The ride starts at 11 a.m. May 7 and should last no later than 1 p.m.
