Bicyclists Ride Through Tioga!

What a beautiful morning for a bike ride! Bicyclists are taking a ride through Tioga County.

Saturday, the 13th annual Bike Tioga Event was held at Waverly High School. Around 100 riders brought out their bicycles for their choice of a 20, 50 or 100 mile route. Organizers say this isn't a race, but a chance for riders to get a view of the county.

Riders were also encouraged to stop along the way and visit local businesses and tourist attractions.

"Women have been breastfeeding for years and years. It's just that here, particularly in the United States, we've moved away from that. And so we're really trying to move towards that again and in order for us to do that, women need support," said Public Health Educator at BC Health Dept. Diane O'Hora.
"It's not as easy as some people make it sound like, 'oh, you know you don't have to prepare bottles or wash bottles or anything like that. But there's so much more involved with breastfeeding. It's like a dedication and commitment, it's kind of like a lifestyle," said Susquehanna Valley Resident Shelby Tennant.
