About This Activity

The 2nd Annual CT Bike for HOPE charity bike ride takes place on Saturday, May 23rd, beginning at 8:00 AM at the corners of Howe Avenue and Cornell Street in Shelton, CT. While we are actively seeking riders of all ages and abilities, we are also looking for volunteers to help out the day of the event. Please go to Volunteers.

To see the different routes, please go to www.ctbikeforhope.org.

All proceeds from the Bike For HOPE will go to support MovingWithHOPE, Inc., a Shelton-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps to provide rehabilitation therapy grants and access to adaptive equipment for survivors of brain and spinal cord injuries and diseases, so that they may receive year-round independent living skills training, recreation, and inclusive socialization. To learn more about MovingWithHOPE's mission and vision, please visit www.movingwithhope.org.

MovingWithHOPE strives to make a difference in the lives of those we help, but we can't do it alone. We rely on generous donations from the public and private sponsors to meet our goals. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to MovingWithHOPE to aid us in our mission to help those with brain and spinal cord injuries in our community.

The CT Bike For HOPE will end when the last group of riders returns to the starting point in downtown Shelton. The CT Bike For HOPE ride is a family-oriented bike that will encompass completed sections of the Naugatuck Greenway. The run will not be timed and racing is not allowed. The event will provide a terrific brunch/lunch for all participants, families and volunteers along with music and kids activities.

Prior to the start of the Bike for HOPE, Class Cycles of Southbury, CT, will provide a free workshop that will include an inspection to ensure that each participant will have a safe and enjoyable ride. They will also have spare parts onsite. Vans will be provided to pick up any riders along the route who fatigue or whose bikes have broken down.

Each rider will be put in a group with a team leader who will be responsible for keeping riders safe and on task with each route and distance. Each rider will also have their own paper or digital map. Every 5 miles along the way, there will be a stop where each rider can rest, have a snack, or use a bathroom. If needed, riders can stop more frequently.
