Riding for a cause this weekend

If your inner cycling philanthropist wants to come out this weekend, there are a number of options.

On Saturday, July 17, Bike MS presents the next ride in their summer-long New England series, the Minuteman Ride. This time riders will be biking around historic Concord, near sites from the start of the American Revolution. Anyone participating in the ride are eligible to receive 10% off any Urban AdvenTours bike rental for the ride and 10% off pre-ride tuneups.

Reid’s Ride

Next up is the sixth annual Reid’s Ride on Sunday, July 18, where riders will pedal for 28 miles from Lynnfield to Cape Ann, MA. The ride is a fundraiser for the Reid R. Sacco Memorial Foundation whose mission is to support clinical and scientific research into finding more and better treatments — and someday a cure — for the cancers that predominantly strike adolescents and young adults. If you’d like to rent a bike from us for the ride, we’ll deliver to the starting line and pick it up at the finish line, free of charge. Just call us soon to reserve!

Also on Sunday is the CYCLE Kids 3rd Annual Tour de France Party at Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge. Keep and eye our for your friendly neighborhood BioBus out front of Middlesex too! For a ticket price of $35, you can watch the 14th stage of the Tour while enjoying food and beverages from Middlesex and Harpoon. Compete in an indoor time trial and participate in a raffle and silent auction. All proceeds from ticket and raffle sales help CYCLE Kids fight childhood obesity in metro-Boston schools.

There are plenty of great bike events coming up, so there’s no excuse for a boring weekend. Get out and ride!
