Bike Trips 2023
When you go on one of these trips, wear a helmet, have a spare inner tube or two, tools with you to remove your wheel, have lights when needed, and hydration/snacks appropriate for the trip. It is also expected you will be riding a bicycle in decent condition and that you have properly trained for these longer trips. We will establish a bike repair day for any who wants it. Watch for details.
The asservo PRoject bike ride fundraiser
We are doing a Bike Ride Fundraiser for The Asservo Project (TAP). You can ride or help support the riders.
Over the past several years we have supported The Asservo Project (TAP) successfully by having a fund raiser bike ride. We are going to do this again Saturday, June 24 with a ride on the Panhandle Trail. It will begin at the Helicon Brewery in Oakdale, PA. You will be able to choose your ride based on your skill confidence. Choose from a 17 mile, 35 mile or 56 mile trip. Since this is a fund raiser, we ask that you raise as much support as you are able to help combat Human Trafficking. Minimum to ride is $100. If you raise $100 or more, your registration fee will be waived and your credit card will not be charged.
Thanks to the generosity of Pro Bike + Run in Robinson Twp, PA, we will have a raffle that all cyclists will be able to enter on the day of the event to win a Pittsburgh cycling jersey and shorts! Thanks to Pro Bike + Run we will also have a $100 gift card being awarded to the top fundraiser from the bike ride!
New this year, Riding to the Rescue is teaming up with our Running to the Rescue 5k and 1 mile fun run/walk event! We will be holding both events on the same day at the same location. We are coordinating together to try to make it so that our events will end at the same time so that everyone can hear from The Asservo Project around 1 PM at the Helicon Brewery. If your family members may be more interested in the 5k or 1 mile event, please check out https://runsignup.com/Race/PA/Oakdale/Asservo5k.
