Want to Ride for a Cause? Check Out These Great Charity Rides!
Charity rides are a great way to get some fun, supported riding in while also raising money for causes you care about. Here at Urban AdvenTours, we partner with a number of local charity rides spanning the entire summer season and support them and their ridership (i.e., YOU!) with discounted rentals and/or other services for the rides.
Have your own bike? Great! But we’d bet you have a friend or two who wants to ride as well, who maybe doesn’t have a good bike, and even then, we’re happy to help!
Check out some of the upcoming rides below, or see the full list of this summer’s charity rides here. Don’t forget to register early so you have plenty of time to meet your fundraising goals!
