We made it!!
5 days, 477mi from Boston to Washington, DC.

Thanks to all that supported the ride by joining us, donating to Bikes Belong and for being a part of a movement much bigger than anyone one of us. Keep checking for more news and updates on next year's Ride on Washington.

The ride is coming up fast and excitement is definitely building more than I could have ever imagined. If you've landed here, you're obviously someone connected to cycling in some way. Please the letter below to see how being a part of The Ride on Washington can help cycling via Bikes Belong.
Thanks,

Starting March 4th I'll be riding down to Washington, DC from Boston. I was planning on going the usual way, in a plane, but thought a bike ride was a little more fitting - Joining me is long time cycling journalist, advocate, promoter and announcer Richard Fries, and several other leaders of American bike culture for part of their five-day ride to Washington D.C. for the National Bicycle Summit.

We will be riding to support the Bikes Belong Foundation. One of the most effective non-profits in America, Bikes Belong manages to convert every dollar it receives into $1,800 in government funding for bike paths, bike lanes, bike programs and bike facilities. Visit www.bikesbelong.org for more information.

We aim to raise $ between now and our departure, but as we start we hope to ride the tide into the Summit. If we meet our goal, Bikes Belong can leverage that into $180 million in government funding for bike paths, bike lanes, bike facilities and bike programs. No other donation you make could make such a huge impact for America’s health, environment, and quality of life.

Visit our Facebook page for more info and spread the word to anyone you'd like.

Please consider donating. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!
TJ
