One big difference...this year I'm doubling down and will be riding the 100k!
Join me in supporting this great cause for a second year and maybe you can double down, too!
What is the Flyers Charity Classic?
"The Toyota Flyers Charity Classic is a city-wide event incorporating a 5k walk/run through the Philadelphia Navy Yard, a 10-mile family bike ride through the Navy Yard and FDR Park, and two bike rides – a 50K and a 100K – spanning the sights and sounds of Broad Street, through historic Valley Forge Park leading back through MLK Drive to the Wells Fargo Center Complex. All proceeds benefit Flyers Charities and the Flyers Alumni Association and the various non-profit organizations they support throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. The Toyota Flyers Charity Classic is produced in partnership with the City of Philadelphia, g4 Productions, PIDC Philadelphia, Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, Valley Forge National Historical Park and The Navy Yard."
Why do I ride?
Cycling has become an outlet for me. If I am having a great day, I ride. Anxiety? I ride. Depression? I ride. My passion to push myself in exercise comes from my dad who rode with me last year. My passion for giving back and helping those in need comes from my mom. The chance to combine these two things I hold so close to me seemed like the perfect fit!
I hope you can join me in helping out some incredible organizations and I promise to send you each a sweaty post-ride picture when I cross the finish line in July!
