If you enjoy biking and have the desire to serve the poor, join the Hope for New York cycling team! It is a great way to raise awareness and funds for HFNY Affiliates that serve the poor and marginalized in our city.
On Saturday, September 25, we will participate in the Escape New York bike ride again, with a goal to raise over $50,000 for HFNY. The ride starts and ends in Manhattan with scenic routes through Bergen and Rockland Counties.
An anonymous donor has generously offered up to $25,000 in a matching grant! Basically, the first 50 riders who have raised $500 or more will receive a $500 matching gift and a HFNY bike jersey.
No experience? No problem. You can choose to ride 50, 75 or 100 miles and you can get in shape with the HFNY cycling team through a series of training rides that lead up to the actual event. Not only is it fun, it will be a great opportunity to meet other bike enthusiasts while raising funds for a good cause.
