Delaware triathlete, runner and cyclist Mike Clark would have been proud to see so many friends turn out for Saturday’s memorial bike ride to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware (BGCD). Some 250 cyclists enjoyed a picture-perfect day for the 8th annual Mike Clark Legacy Foundation Memorial Ride. Some recounted Clark’s competitive spirit and shared memories of their dear friend who had a tremendous impact on each of their lives. Concord High School classmates Terry Ward, Jim Markisohn and Greg Morrison turned out for the ride and still greatly miss Clark, who died in 2008. “We would do anything for Mike,” said Ward. The ride featured 25-mile and 50-mile rides through Wilmington and scenic Yorklyn. Starting at A.I. duPont High School, bikers peddled to their first rest stop at the historic Auburn Heights Preserve in Yorklyn, where and were greated by Boy Scout volunteers from Troop 29.

Mike Clark volunteered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware for some 30 years. Since 2008, the all-volunteer Mike Legacy Foundation has funded the creation of hi-tech youth facilities at three BGCD sites in Delaware. And his mentoring legacy lives on through Mike’s TEAM, “Teaching Excellence by Academic Mentoring.”
