How much does it cost?
Registration costs $95; each rider must raise $3,500. With our support, you’ll be amazed how quickly you’ll reach your goal—our average Rider last year raised over $7,000!
What is the terrain like?
Beautiful, historic, and challenging! The first half of Day 1 is largely spent on two-lane country roads. In the afternoon you’ll make your way to the Mohawk valley and a paved trail as you approach Albany. Your second day features glorious scenery on back roads in the foothills of the Catskills. Your final day takes you over hill and dale to the Hudson River Valley, with afternoon paved trails as you approach New York City. (Route is subject to change.)
May I pick my own roommate?
Absolutely! If you already know who your roommate is, please indicate that on your registration form. Otherwise we'll pair you up with a person of the same gender.
How much of the money will go to Housing Works?
We work very hard to keep production expenses as low as possible by soliciting sponsorships, donations, and discounts for supplies. In 2017, the riders and crew returned $310,000 to Housing Works. Ultimately, the amount of money, and the percent return, depends upon how many people ride and how much each rider raises.
Is there a minimum age?
Yes, all participants must be at least 18 years old by the start of the Ride. 16- and 17-year-old riders may participate if accompanied by a parent or guardian; please contact our office for details.
