The 2017 A Reason to Ride has been scheduled for Sunday, September 17.

Visit for registration and more information as it becomes available.

Family Fun

The family-oriented event begins at the parking lot of 75 Sylvan Street in Danvers (an office building near the Liberty Tree Mall) and continues with the participant's choice of a 10-, 25- or 50-mile ride or a 5K walk/run. The cycling routes wind through the scenic towns of Danvers, Beverly, Wenham, Essex and Gloucester.

A Reason to Ride is organized by BIDMC patient Tom DesFosses (right) and presented by Fuddruckers restaurants. In addition to the ride, walk and run, the event features a trike-a-thon for kids, a Fuddruckers cookout, raffles, music, a car show and much more.

No Fundraising Minimum
