MANCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - Hundreds of bicyclists are hitting the roads in the southern Vermont towns of Manchester and Stratton this weekend for the annual Vermont Challenge.

Organizers say about 300 riders were registered for the fourth annual event, raising more than $10,000 for local charities.

The rides began on Thursday and take place on Saturday and Sunday.

The most challenging ride is on Saturday, with a 100-mile ride including a climb up the mountain to the Stratton Mountain Resort.

Organizers tell the Rutland Herald that the riders range in age from 24 to 82 and are from 22 states, including as far away as California and Texas.
