Here’s an account of our first charity bike ride – the MS Bike Ride. We finally got around to doing a charity bike ride, and it was a great experience. We are looking forwards to our next charity bike ride!
Deciding to do a charity ride is a great way to get involved and get fit. The fixed date for the cycling event gives you a get-fit goal to aim for, and the motivation to keep going with your cycling training plan (you don’t want to end up pushing your bike uphill on the day, if you can avoid it). Most charity bike rides in the USA and Canada take place during the summer, so you have the early part of the year to start training and getting fit for your chosen charity ride.
