200 to pedal in Heights bike-a-thon
by Nicole Gaudiano

Hasbrouck Heights -- More than 200 teens will be pedaling for prizes Saturday in the Hasbrouck Heights Police Department’s sixth annual bicycle marathon.

Hasbrouck Heights sixth-through ninth-graders who haven’t entered the race yet are still welcome to participate in the 24-hour relay around the high school track, police said.

The two winning teams will take home 10 custom-fit, $500 Cannondale mountain bikes, donated by Bill Kundert of Kundert Volvo in Hasbrouck Heights, Police Chief Michael Colaneri said. Last year’s winning team rode 357 miles in 24 hours.

Organizers will open the athletic field gates at 8 a.m. The race begins at 10 a.m.

Each team of five gets a T-shirt, bike helmets, and an odometer for their bikes for an entry fee of $15.

Aside from bikes, organizers will award 70 trophies and 60 $50-savings bonds to division winners. Hamburgers, grilled by the Fire Department, pizza, Dunkin’ Donuts, and McDonald’s will be available for the hungry.
