The Ridgefield Bicycle Co. will return as title sponsor of the seventh annual TriRidgefield, the sprint-distance triathlon, in June.

“We are thrilled to support and be part of this great event,” said Jacqui Dowd, who owns the Ridgefield Bicycle Co. with husband Sean. “It combines a community connection, a competitive spirit and cycling, which is what we are all about.”

Registration opens at 12:01 a.m. New Year’s Day and is capped at 400 registrants. The race, at Martin Park, is on June 2, at 7 a.m., with a half-mile swim, 13-mile bike ride and 3.1-mile run.

“We’re thrilled at the level of participation in the triathlon. It’s both very competitive, drawing top athletes from the region, and fun, as many first-timers kick off their experience here,” said Ridgefield Magazine publisher Geoffrey Morris, who has been organizing the event since 2007 with race director Evan McGerald.
