Kiwanis clubs from Coqille, Florence, Bandon and the Bay area are teaming up to sponsor the annual Kiwanis Doernbecher Memorial Bicycle Tour on Saturday, May 20th at Sturdivant Park in Coquille. The Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program is a non-profit organization that raises money for advanced cancer treatment and research through activities and events run by volunteers. All skill levels are welcome. There are two distances to choose from: 61 and 25 miles. There are no steep grades on any of the rides and all types of bicycles are welcome. This event is in memory of Phillip James Tofflemire.
