For the fifth time, more than 800 cyclists participated in a Sunday community bike ride supporting children with disabilities in Millersville.
    
The ride offered 15, 30, 65, and even 100-mile routes for cyclists all to help support several non-profits throughout Anne Arundel County.
    
A new partner, 'V-Linc' based out of Baltimore helped out by building adaptive equipment for children with special needs, customizing bicycles for those children.

Jon Korin, President of 'Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis and Anne Arundel County' says some lucky children will be receiving those bikes:

“Right here at lifeline 100, they're going to present three bikes to three Anne Arundel County children. Who will then be able to participate in our bike rodeo with all of the other children.”

The bike rodeo was free to all children.
  

Several County departments and community groups helped put on the event. Leaders say they will do it again next year.
