The annual Bikes Fight Cancer Charity Ride is this Saturday, June 18th. The event will be held at Treehouse Brewery in Deerfield. In addition to having several riders in the event, the Northampton Cycling Club is sponsoring one of the ride’s rest stops.
The BFC group has raised over $830,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer institute since 2006.
The ride has 25-mile and 50-mile route options.
If you hurry, you may be able to get one of the final few spots for the fun day of riding. If you use the link below, you will get 10% off of entry, but there are only six spots remaining.
After the ride there will be food trucks, beer, and a raffle.
The event will also feature activities for the whole family:
For anyone who will be attending this year’s event with your whole family we are excited to offer a Kids’ Bike Rodeo and JR. Trail Ride! Both of these activities are free and open to kids of all ages on two wheels! The kids’ bike rodeo and trail ride will begin after the 25 mile ride departs at around 9am. All kids who wish to participate will gather on the grass near the finish line and be divided into groups. The Bike Rodeo activities are designed to be safe and fun while at the same time improving bike handling skills. Activities will include bike limbo, bean bag toss, balance obstacles, slow race, stop-on-a-dime and a skid contest! Kids that choose to participate in the JR. Trail Ride will have the opportunity to explore the terrain around the Treehouse Brewery grounds. All kids should wear closed toe shoes and helmets. Off-road capable bikes are required for the jr. trail ride. A parent or guardian should remain on premises during the ride in case of emergency.
The rodeo and trail ride will conclude around 10:30 with plenty of time to help welcome the 25 and 50 mile finishers back from their rides. Participation in the kids’ rodeo and trail ride is free and there is no need to pre-register. Just bring a bike and check in at the event!
Best of luck to all the riders.
