If the Olympics has gotten you into a competitive mood, grab your bike and head to Lovell on Saturday for the 7th Annual Tour de Lovell.

The race offers three categories and multiple age groups. Ride in the Road or Touring categories (20 miles each) or sign the kids up for the Kids Tour (4 miles).

Road racers should be piloting performance/racing bikes in and around Lovell. The touring category requires mountain/comfort bikes.

Whether you're fast or not, you'll be able to enjoy the scenic views of the local area and the White Mountains. The event starts and finishes at the New Suncook School and sticks to routes 5 and 5A.

Register online for the event and you can show your speedy skills and help raise money for the Lovell Recreation Department and Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library.
