Mineola Metric ride

About 250 bicyclists, local as well as many others, took part in the Mineola Metric ride which benefitted the East Texas Food Bank and the American Diabetes Association. This year’s ride honored Tom Marty of Lindale who died this fall in a bicycling, vehicle accident on Highway 69 this fall. Jayne Lankford, Ward 2 city councilperson and bicycling enthusiast, is on the far right encouraging riders as they begin their ride.
