Smethport Web — by Nathan Muller

The record shattering 2010 Wheel Around the Hub Cycling Race held in Smethport September 18th was a giant community effort involving dozens of volunteers and numerous local and regional businesses, industries and individuals.

The race was organized by the Wheel Race Committee, a special committee of the Smethport Fire Department as a special fund raiser for the Smethport Fire Police, a division of the fire department. Over $6000 was raised for the volunteer Fire Police to purchase new digital radios and equipment.  

The race organizers wish to thank all of our donors for making the race a huge financial success for the fire police.
