MassBike’s Ride Partner Program provides a great opportunity for rides to reach more potential riders and helps MassBike achieve its goal of increasing bicycle ridership in Massachusetts. Charity rides can increase their fundraising, and for-profit rides can increase their revenue, all while supporting MassBike’s ongoing efforts to make bicycling safer, more convenient, and more enjoyable across Massachusetts.
