The CICS Touring Machines is a friendly group of CICS cyclists who will be riding together and supporting Will Bike 4 Food in 2020. We are looking forward to the opportunity to apply our passion for cycling to the vital cause of alleviating food insecurity in Western Massachusetts.
Together, we roll.
Will Bike 4 Food
Will Bike 4 Food is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020 and it is going VIRTUAL! This fun cycling event raises funds and awareness for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Will Bike 4 Food invites cyclists of all ages and abilities to pedal towards a hunger-free future. This year you choose your ride. Ride up a mountain, on the trails, or your stationary bike at home.
100% of your donation goes to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts to support their mission to feed our neighbors in need and lead the community to end hunger (unavoidable credit card fees notwithstanding). Every $1 = 4 meals!
Register to ride and find more event details at willbike4food.org

The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts
Since 1982, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts has been feeding our neighbors in need and leading the community to end hunger. We distribute food to our member agencies in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties. These independent pantries, meal sites and shelters are on the front lines of emergency food assistance in our region, playing a crucial role helping individuals, families, seniors and children. Every $1 donated to The Food Bank can purchase 4 meals for a family who needs them most.
