This is my fourth year participating in annual Will Bike 4 Food and will be the second time I've done it while volunteering at their partner organization, the Amherst Food Pantry.  Welcome to my fundraising page!

This is a fun cyling event that helps feed our neighbors in need and end hunger in western Mass. by raising funds and awareness for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Every $1 can provide 4 meals for a local family who needs them most. Contributions of any size to my efforts are appreciated. 100% of your donation (excepting unavoidable credit card fees) will go to support The Food Bank's mission notwithstanding). All donations are tax deductible. Thank you!

Due to the pandemic--which makes the need for food support stronger--this year's ride will be virtual.  That doesn't mean that I'll be watching scenery go by on YouTube.  Rather, instead of a peloton, each participant will be pedaling on their own and arranging their own support.  I'm going to take this as an opportunity to make it a bit more like the old cents-per-mile Walks for Hunger: the more people pledge, the farther I will ride.

For the first $250 pledged, I will ride one mile for each $4.  For the next $750, one mile per $20, reaching the normal WB4F distance of 100 miles at my target of $1000.  At that point, I'll do something fairly close to the normal route.  Beyond that, one mile per $30 up to $1300, one mile per $70 to $2000, and one mile per $100 to $3000 and 130 miles, which is definitely long enough that I will be trying to find the flattest possible route.  If people come through and give me more than that, I'll add one mile for each additional 5%, up to 150 miles (ack!) at $8000, I should be so lucky.
