Both groups joined together on Lincoln Street and rode the rest of the way together to open the new bike racks at the corner of Bull and Broughton.Sumner loved the idea of leaving her car parked in the driveway and riding with her fellow neighbors. There was just one problem; Joan doesn’t own a bike. She sent an email to her neighbors letting them know about the ride and her need for two wheels. Once her son adjusted the seat of her loaner bike and brought her a helmet Joan was ready to ride.“It was a great way to start the morning, get in some exercise, and enjoy the beautiful weather,” Sumner said. “I have always wanted to do more for the environment and this was a great way to get involved. I look forward to participating in future Dump the Pump Convoys.”ABOUT CORA BETT THOMAS REALTYWith listings for the area’s finest residential and commercial properties, Cora Bett Thomas Realty & Associates, is an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s Great Estates and Mayfair International Realty and a longtime member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, The Board of Regents, Luxury Portfolio, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (formerly RELO).
