Gear Up to Give Back: Charity Rides at The HB

Here in Boston, each New Year brings snow, sleet, freezing temperatures, and highly bundled-up marathon runners. Fiercely dedicated to their training, each runner has a story and most runners have a mission behind their coveted bib. The Boston Marathon gives 2,585 bibs each year, each one with a $5000 minimum donation to any of the Marathons official Charities.

At The Handle Bar, we’re lucky enough to help our ridership raise these funds and get closer to their individual goals.

We are also lucky enough to support charities outside of the marathon efforts on a continual basis. Riders that host charity rides with us have an opportunity to bring their friends and family together for a little sweat and a lot of inspiration. But they need more help!

Consider signing up for an upcoming charity ride (you can always find sign-up details in the class descriptions online) and get in your HB class while contributing to a great cause. If you’re interested in hosting one of your own, inquire with us at info@handlebarcycling.com

Check out all of the upcoming charity rides in 2016, click the title of each to learn more about the cause. Follow the sign-up links to gear up and give back!
