Maybe you’re an avid cycler. Maybe you enjoy a casual ride through Central Park once in a while. Or maybe you just know how to ride a bike and are willing to step it up. No matter your skill level, you can join Team HFNY members from across the city to cycle and fundraise for our neighbors in need in HFNY’s 16th Annual Charity Bike Ride on September 22.
Cyclists will bike 25, 50, 62, or 100 miles in the Escape New York ride that starts and finishes at Sakura Park, located at 122nd Street and Riverside Drive. Training rides with other Team HFNY members are available through August and September.
But this is more than just a bike ride. Team HFNY also has a goal of raising $155,000 for the poor and magnizalized of our city. When you fundraise as a Team HFNY member (or support a Team HFNY cyclist!), you’re giving to meet needs of vulnerable populations across our city, including the homeless, the elderly, at-risk youth, and new immigrants.
You can sign up to ride as an individual or as part of a team of five or more riders who will fundraise together. Each rider is strongly encouraged to raise $1,000 for our neighbors in need.
