Gears for Good National Ride

Gears for Good National Ride 2019

Ride in a Gears for Good charity bicycle ride for Hemophilia Federation of America’s Team Resilience! Riders raise awareness and funds for HFA’s Helping Hands program, which provides urgent funding for basic living expenses such as housing, transportation and utility bills for families living with bleeding disorders.

HFA has partnered with
Get Out & Go Tours which leads the group on this three-day, 156-mile charity bike ride from West Virginia to Washington, D.C.

The ride is fully supported with:

•Professional cycling jersey (when registered by July 31, 2019)
•A shuttle for carrying gear
•Meals and snacks
•Maps and information cards to help riders navigate the trails
•Mechanical support
•Bike rentals upon request

This support means riders can participate in the entire ride or select portions of the ride daily without worry.

We will travel through charming small towns with views of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. These towns, however, have limited hotel space, so we ask riders to consider rooming with someone else which gives us space for additional riders. Additional riders mean more money raised for Helping Hands! Hotel accommodations are included, but if you wish to pay for your own room, we would welcome your contribution. Single rooms can be reserved for an additional fee.  Please contact to make arrangements.

How to raise $200 in one week!
Ask 5 friends for $5
Ask 2 co-workers for $15
Ask a neighbor for $20
Ask 4 family members for $25 (we have a graphic that Michael created for 2018 of this)

Training Tip:
Don't let your hunger take over. You should try to consume 200 calories for every hour of riding. Some items that are easy to eat on the go include energy bars, energy gels or almonds!
Give it up!
Ask some of your friends or family members to "Give It Up".  The rules are simple: have those that you ask to agree to give up an indulgence for a certain amount of time and put the money toward your cause or project.  It can be something simple as buying a coffee each day or weekly tickets to the movies. If they go to Starbucks daily and spend $5, that could bring in $25 in 5 days. So easy, right?!

Training Tip:
Check your tire pressure-lower tire pressure helps with traction, cornering and comfort while riding!
