Brief Description

For our 2005 fundraiser, Beyond the 11th will sponsor “Cycling Forward 2005,” a bike ride from Ground Zero in NYC to Boston, MA. In 2004, we raised over $150,000 and we hope to surpass that this year. All money raised will benefit widows affected by war and terrorism in Afghanistan.

Fundraising

Fundraising commitments vary depending on ride option. All riders must provide a valid credit card number to register. Your credit card will be debited only if you do not meet the fundraising minimum by October 15, 2005.

Upon registering for this event a fundraising page will automatically be created and emailed to you. You can then begin fundraising immediately.

Additional Information

Due to popular demand, we’ve added lots of riding options to accommodate all cycling abilities from the avid cyclist to the recreational rider. You may join us for the entire ride or for part of the way from Ground Zero in NYC to Boston, MA.
