2nd Annual Cycling to Cure Hunger
May 31, 2015
On Sunday May 31st at 9am, in conjunction with Dark Horse Cycles, Brookside Auto and Tire, and Celina Rofer-BHG Rand Realty, we will be hosting the 2nd Annual “Cycling to Cure Hunger” benefit bike ride.
This is a 40 mile ride that starts right at the brewery at 9am, and then covers some of the Hudson Valleys most scenic roads, including crossing over the Newburgh Beacon bridge, cycling though Beacon and Cold Spring, crossing the Bear Mountain Bridge, through Historic West Point Military Academy, down scenic route 218 and Cornwall on Hudson, finishing up right where you started – at the brewery.
Participants are asked to pledge $1 per mile, with total proceeds to benefit the HeartStrings program at Valley Central High School. This program provides take home food packets for needy students, lunch tickets, hygienic products, clothing, and counseling for students that have been victims of abuse.
At the brewery participants will be treated to a free beer of their choice, and a choice of any lunch offerings, plus live music. A raffle for a juvenile mountain bike worth over $400 will be available with 100% of those proceeds to benefit the students as well. Ride begins at 9 am, where cue sheets will be handed out and sag service (truck following the route with tubes, tools, water etc.) will be provided. Registration is available at:
Let’s make a difference in someone’s lives while keeping the money and love local in the beautiful Hudson Valley.
