PEDAL FOR A PURPOSE

Join STARS for the 2021 Biking the Boat & Beyond Charity Ride, and 'Pedal for a Purpose' this June 19th!

This year, participants can choose between three road ride courses that will offer something for everyone. Choose the 50-mile challenge ride, the 20-mile ride, or the 5-mile family fun ride! All registered riders will receive a pre-event swag bag, and lunch on event day to be enjoyed during our socially distanced picnic. Top fundraisers and contest winners will receive great prizes!

All registered riders will be entered in a drawing to win a New Belgium Cruiser Bike!


All proceeds benefit the STARS mission to empower and enrich lives through adaptive recreational sports.

Location

  West Lincoln Park - 13th and Lincoln (across from the Library)

Where to Park:
There are a few spots reserved for disabled riders on both sides of West Lincoln Park. There will also be approximately 20 spots at B&K Distributing. Otherwise, please park anywhere in town and ride over. There is good parking at the Transit Center just west on US-40 and you can ride the Core Trail over. 
*Do not park at the Library*
