Gears for Good Ohio 2019

Come join Hemophilia Federation of America's Team Resilience as they take on Cleveland, Ohio! HFA has, once again, partnered with the Northern Ohio Hemophilia Foundation to expand Team Resilience, which will raise awareness and funds for Northern Ohio Hemophilia Foundation's Emergency Assistance Fund, a critical safety net for those with bleeding disorders in the Northeast Ohio region.   

Participants will enjoy a beautiful ride through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  Riders can choose between a leisurely 6 mile ride through a challenging 50 miles along the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail.  Whether riders are confident cyclists or beginners, the “Bike Aboard” option will be available.  Just flag down the train at one of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad stations and bring your bike on board.  Please note: riders who wish to utilize the Bike Aboard option at the Botzum trail head, you will need to be registered and at the start by 10 AM, the train will begin to load riders to Akron at 10:10 AM. 

At the end of the ride, don't forget to join us for the Post Ride Luncheon Celebration!

Please contact with any questions.

Don't be shy, try these tactics and see how much you can raise for NOHF!

Training Tip:
GET SADDLE Time! Nothing makes one's butt not hurt better than time on the saddle. Even if it's a short ride, take advantage of it, every little bit helps.

Training Tip: 
Every season, getting "back in the saddle" has a period of discomfort. Legs, arms, and, oh my BUTT! You already know that legs just need conditioning, but here is the secret...butts do too.

Ride with bike shorts. Bicycling is not running, and it begs for a pad on your seat. Bike shorts with a nice synthetic pad that is hydrophobic, and ideally contains some closed cell foam inside, helps tremendously.
