Welcome to the Kids of Courage and TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour!
We are gearing up for our second year ride through NYC (minus the traffic and tolls) and as always our campers will be on hand with specialized adaptive equipment riding alongside us and inspiring us like they do every day!
So.... Please join us on May 5th, 2013 for a thrilling ride through the five boroughs of New York, benefiting Kids of Courage (www.kidsoc.org), an organization dedicated to helping children and young adults with serious medical diagnoses conquer the challenges of their illnesses with fun and adventure. Join us on this ride by raising $1,000 or more through sponsorships and donations. Let your family and friends know that you aspire to bike for a cause that will make a huge difference in the lives of terminally ill and severely disabled children. It will be a thrilling adventure for you, as well as enable our heroic children to have unforgettable experiences that they have dreamed of.
Your adventure begins in Lower Manhattan. The ride heads north through the heart of Manhattan to Central Park and continues on to historic Harlem and the Bronx, returning south along the East River on the FDR Drive. From there it crosses into Queens and then Brooklyn, where cyclists take over the highway before making the thrilling climb up--and down--the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Staten Island. The route is 40 miles, mostly flat except for the bridges. Enjoy the sights of springtime in the city as you cycle through the course, joined by other like-minded cyclists, cycling for an admirable cause.Since this a relatively easy course, minimal training is necessary, so it is not too late to make a commitment to ride and make a difference in your life as well as others.
