Join us for the 26th CycleAbility Challenge!
The CycleAbility Challenge is a 2-day, up to 150-mile bicycle ride from Patterson, NY to Massachusetts. It is a wonderful event which has raised over $5.17 million since its inception in 1990.
The Challenge benefits Special Olympics New York-Hudson Valley Region. This organization provides programs and services to thousands of individuals with intellectual disabilities who reside in our local communities.
First Time Cyclists:
Team Captains: If you bring in a new cyclist(s), here is the Breakdown of how much a New Cyclist needs to raise by day of ride (6/4/16) - We hope this will help you recruit new cyclist(s) this year.
Note: All riders in their 3rd year or more on the challenge will continue to have a $2,000 individual minimum fundraising goal
1st year: $1,200
2nd year: $1,500
(New Cyclists can register as an individual as well)
We have new incentive this year called, Buy it or Earn it!
We will be selling Jerseys this year, but you can earn one for free by raising the minimum listed below:
- Returning Cyclists raises $3,000 they get a free jersey
- New Cyclist raises $2,000 they get a free jersey.
Otherwise, if they raise minimum, but don't hit the "free jersey benchmark", the jersey can still be purchased.
When registering, we have an option for Cyclists to invite a Spouse, Guest or a Friend to the Challenge on Saturday Night, 6/4 for only $250. This would include their Saturday night Hotel Stay, Dinner, then Sunday's Breakfast, and the fun Barbecue before departure Sunday. This option will be available for purchase during registration.
