Chris Schweitzer Photos Pedal power brought over 1,100 people from East Rock to West Rock and in some cases Sleeping Giant on two wheels Saturday for the annual “Rock to Rock” group charity ride. The event generated not just unmeasurable amounts of exercise and fun, but also more than $140,000 for 23 local not-for-profit groups doing environmental work.

Timed to Earth Day, the event has grown in just five years to one of the city’s most energetic and popular grassroots events. It started Saturday at Common Ground at the base of West Rock and ended in East Rock’s College Woods section with an environmental fair.

The rides ranged from a metric century (a little over 60 miles) to a 20-miler (from Sleeping Giant) to 8-mile versions for adults and for families.
