Five Boro Bike Tour

Team Trail Blazers is biking 40 miles for campers!
Five Boro Bike Tour
On May 3, 2020 we're biking 40 miles, through all five New York City boroughs, to raise funds for programs

Trail Blazers campers and alumni are familiar with the Vagabond, the multi-day backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail or Delaware River where they test their mettle. On May 3, 2020, staff, board members, and friends will test their mettle on a biking Vagabond of sorts – 40 miles through all five boroughs as part of the Five Boro Bike Tour! Team Trail Blazers has already inflated their tires and prepped their helmets – will you support them today and help us get a camper to camp this summer?

I Want to Bike

FAQ

I understand this is a fundraiser. How much should I fundraise myself?

In order to help us reach our goal, we are asking all bikers to commit to raising at least $750 each. Each dollar is 100% tax deductible and goes directly to the Scholarship Fund, helping put a camper on the bus for summer camp this year, so please do feel free to set a higher goal if you are able!

Can children participate?

Children ages 3 to 9 must ride with an adult on a tandem bike, in a child’s seat, on a tag-along bike, or in a bike trailer. Children/teens ages 10 to 17 may ride their own bikes, but must remain in close proximity to the adult with whom they were registered. Keep in mind, each individual biker has a fundraising commitment.

What is the deadline to register?

Registration opens in January 2020. The event is first come first served, so register soon while spots are still available! See you at the starting line!

I know someone who would love to be a part of this.

Wonderful – we believe the more the merrier! Feel free to spread the word!
