Medic One has partnered with the Better Life Counseling Center to sponsor the Medic One Ride for a Better Life on Saturday October 21 st. In 2005 we had over 70 riders for our first cycling event; we hope that this year's ride will be bigger and better. There will be 10 mile, 20 mile and 62 mile courses available through scenic Crowley's Ridge in and around Jonesboro, AR.Lunch will be provided after the ride.The Medic One Ride for a Better Life is open to all riders. Pre-registration has begun and riders may pre-register for $30. All Adult riders who pre register by October 1 st will receive a cycling jersey, those who register after October 1st will receive a T-shirt. Registration will be available the day of the event for $40. Children 12 and under may register for $15.00 and receive a T-Shirt. Each participant will receive a rider packet with free items from our sponsors. All proceeds from the ride will benefit the Better Life Counseling Center's "Samaritan Fund". Better Life Counseling Center, Inc. (BLCC) is a nonprofit faith-based organization that provides Christian counseling to families and individuals. BLCC uses its 'Samaritan Fund', comprised of donated money from individuals, businesses and churches, to adjust clients' out-of-pocket costs according to their ability to pay.No one is turned away because of their financial situation. If you would like more information or entry forms for the ride go to our website at If you would like to volunteer or become a sponsor for the event you may contact Tammy Evins at 870-935-4673 or for more information.

This was one of my favorite rides last year and I plan to do it again this fall! A few rolling hills otherwise farmland flat!

Y'all sign up! I was home by 2 that day... yes from J'Boro.
