            EASLEY --- Tri-County Technical College's Easley Campus has partnered with the Pickens County YMCA to sponsor a signature annual event for the community.

            Attack on Sassafras Mountain, an all-day event for cyclists, will be held Saturday, October 13, beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the College's Easley Campus located on Powdersville Road.

            Cyclists will ride through parts of the cities of Easley and Pickens and up through the beautiful foothills region of South Carolina, including a challenging climb to South Carolina's highest point -- Sassafras Mountain (3,553 ft.).  Cyclists will travel a distance of 70 miles (35 miles to the top of the mountain).  The ride will start and end at the Easley Campus.

            "Canadian cyclists use this as a practice run for their cycling events," said Dr. Brian Swords, director of the Easley Campus and co-organizer of the event.  "We have a strong cycling community in the tri-counties, especially in Pickens County.  Our community has been asking for an event like this.  We were so happy to partner with the Pickens County YMCA.  Similar events, like the Attack on Mount Mitchell in Greenville, have been successful.  We expect this one to draw a great deal of interest."

            The registration fee is $45 and the deadline to register is Sunday, October 7.

            Proceeds from this event will go toward the ChildWatch Center at the Easley YMCA and programming at Tri-County Technical College's Easley Campus.
