UPDATED: More Than 1,000 Cyclists Travel From Philly to Galloway

The "Tour De Shore" event was held on Sunday morning.

Approximately 1,600 bicyclists, including Galloway Councilman Jim Gorman and volunteers Jim and Kerry McElwee, rode from Philadelphia to Galloway on Sunday morning for the Irish Pub of Philadelphia's 25th annual "Tour de Shore" charity event.

The tour, which consisted mostly of law enforcement personnel, began at 7 a.m. and the bicyclists arrived in Galloway just before 10 a.m.

One bicyclist fell on Jimmy Leeds Road near the Municipal Complex and was treated on scene by Galloway's EMTs.

After a stop in Galloway, the ride, which benefits various charities, makes its way to the Boardwalk in Atlantic City.

Donna Patterson was part of the volunteer team that made the ride possible, and provided additional photos for Galloway Patch on Tuesday.

"We are so thankful to Galloway for being so generous and allowing us to use their space," Patterson said in an email. "The rest stops are such an important part of the ride and we couldn't do what we do without the help of folks like Galloway for providing us the use of their property and services. The ability to allow riders a large area to refuel and rest is so important and so appreciated by the riders."
