<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>A benefit bike ride Saturday designed to stop abuse in Cache Valley aims to raise funds in support of CAPSA (Community Abuse Prevention Services Agency).</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>The Third Annual Cruising to Stop Abusing Ride begins Saturday morning at 10 o’clock in Wellsville. </span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>“This is our third year,” said CAPSA’s Marketing and Development Director James Boyd. “It is a local ride. Cache Valley is one of the best places for bike riding, especially this time of the year. We have three routes, so it is designed for all different levels of skill.”</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>Boyd said the name of the ride originated from a survivor of domestic violence and CAPSA is inviting those participating to ride for her and the other 232 individuals CAPSA sheltered last year.</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>“CAPSA is known as a shelter for domestic violence,” said Boyd, “and we have a lot of other services. We work with survivors who are dealing with protective orders and we help them through court appearances and with other services they need.</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>“We also have outreach programs. We work to educate our youth as well as college students about domestic violence and to let them know where they can and how they can get help if they are a victim.”</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>The Saturday ride starts and finishes at the Big Red Church in Wellsville, 75 South 100 East.</span></p>

<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>Registration is available on line at <a href=”http://capsa.org”><span class=”s2″>capsa.org</span></a>.</span></p>
