Our friends at Bikes Fight Cancer have some exciting news: they are now a 501(c)(3) non-profit. The NCC is proud to support a rest stop at the BFC charity ride on June 17th. Please consider joining your fellow NCC riders fundraising and riding the event.

As the event is drawing closer, the entry fee has increased. NCC members are still eligible for the discounted entry fee by using the link on our Discount Codes page.

Here is the report from last year’s ride for inspiration.

If you are unable to join us for the fun, please consider donating to the NCC Team to raise money for this worthy cause.

Here is the full announcement from BFC:



We are excited to share with you that Bikes Fight Cancer has been awarded our 501(c)(3) nonprofit status! Attached is our press release for your reference.

What started in 2006 with a small group of friends from Palmer, has become a powerhouse group of fundraising athletes! Together we have raised close to $1 Million in the past 18 years for cancer fighting research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!

It is our goal to continue to use our love of bikes to raise valuable funds for cancer research, but now we will also direct funding to organizations that offer financial and support services in our community to lessen the burden of a cancer diagnosis. The organizations we will be supporting in 2023 include:

This announcement makes the June 17th Bikes Fight Cancer Charity Ride even more exciting! This direction will bring your fundraising closer to home and will allow us to engage new participants who have been impacted and supported by our partner organizations.

We will continue to direct 100% of rider raised money directly to our partners! We hope you are excited about this evolution in the Bikes Fight Cancer journey!

Please reach out with any questions. Happy Fundraising!
