On September 17, 2011, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts will host the first annual Will Bike 4 Food, a charity ride against hunger.
Casual and avid cyclists alike are invited to participate in ‘Will Bike 4 Food,’ a bike-a-thon charity event that will feature 25, 50, and 100 mile rides. The Food Bank has been working closely with local cycling experts to determine the most interesting and challenging routes for every level.
Starting from Millside Park in Easthampton, cyclists will experience beautiful Pioneer Valley in early Fall, one of the best times of the year to experience Western Massachusetts. The scenic routes will take advantage of the area’s natural beauty; riders can enjoy views of the Oxbow, the Connecticut River, and Mt. Tom.
Prizes will be awarded to those who raise the most money to fight hunger. Participants may compete in teams or as individuals, and will raise dollars for The Food Bank by collecting donations from friends, family members, and co-workers. Every $1 raised can in turn provide $13 dollars worth of food to our neighbors who need it most. All proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts
