Let's Ride Together!

ALS Ride 

Saturday 08/26/2023

On Saturday August 26, Rita Wilczek and Alan Wichman invite you to participate in the HBC ALS Bike Ride, Long Route (50 miles) or Medium Route (28 miles). The rides move along quiet roads in rural Washington County. In addition to providing an enjoyable bike ride, this event has a charitable purpose--to build awareness about ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.  The charitable purpose of this ride is also to request a free-will donation to the ALS Therapy Development Institute (TDI) located in greater Boston, MA.  The ALSTDI ( ) is devoted to finding treatments and ultimately a cure for ALS.

Sign up on the HBC Ride Calendar.

      • A monthly all club Birthday Bash with food, wine and birthday cake
  • Emphasizing rider safety
  • Offering several weekly rides across the metro area:
    • Appealing to a wide variety of rider abilities
    • Exploring close to home or expanding out to the 11 county metropolitan area
    • Providing opportunities for multi-day riding near and far
