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.

Fundraising Tip:  
Send a thank you!  It’s a simple thing to do, but also one of the most powerful.

Make sure to say thank you to everyone who has supported you. Send emails, write personal notes and thank people in person. Do it every opportunity you get.
Wiggle your toes!
Wiggle your toes every now and then. It ensures the blood flowing to your feet for good circulation, limits tension that causes cramping and fatigue, and makes you remain fluid so that you can absorb the bumps and turns of the trail. 

Fundraising Tip:
It’s very common for people to put things off. We all live busy lives and have a lot of other responsibilities on our plates. A little reminder nudge never hurt anyone.

If someone has indicated that they want to donate, but hasn’t, don’t hesitate to follow-up with a phone call or reminder email. Especially as the time you have to fundraise for the event runs down. People respond to deadlines!
