Bikes Not Bombs – Bike-A-Thon Preregistration

21st ANNUAL BIKE-A-THON and the Sustainable Urban Living Festival!

Sunday, June 8
Pre-Registration begins in March!

We’re rolling into the third decade of BNB Bike-A-Thons with a grand expansion of the biggest event of the year!

Pre-registration* begins in early March for the scenic 15, 25, and 62 mile rides. We’ll send you an official number and packet right away, and you can get moving on collecting sponsors – the earlier the better! For ‘08, BNB will provide a booklet of tips and offer a much easier-to-use personal web fundraising set-up (that even hooks into YouTube and FaceBook). There will be training rides, a mechanics work-night, and free tune-ups for riders leading up to the actual Bike-A-Thon.

At the finish line, cyclists will roll in the first BNB sustainable urban living festival upon finishing their ride. Set up in the Southwest Corridor park across from Stony Brook T Station, the fest will be open to the public and feature live music, info tables, workshops, food, speakers, and fanfare for what we expect to be a record number of rider participants.

With the expanded event comes expanded outreach – BNB can offer your business great visibility. Contact [email protected] if you are interested in sponsoring the event. Or, if you are an environmentally-focused business or org, let us know if you are interested in setting up a table or even doing an educational environmental workshop.

*Pre-Registration is now required; it will make everything easier and allow for more rider support!
