Battle Against Hunger 2016 Bike Tour

Benefiting Diocese of New Jersey

Please join us as we ride to help end the battle against hunger. On September 10, 2016 our 14th annual 200-mile bike tour begins in Gettysburg, PA. Utilizing the least traveled roads whenever possible, the route chosen provides riders with breathtaking views of the Amish and central Pennsylvania countryside. The route is a combination of flat, rolling, and hilly terrain. Your physical condition is important and all riders should have ridden 300-400 miles (including one 75-mile ride) in the preceding 2 months before participating in this tour. Hotel accommodations and some meals and snacks are provided with tour registration. We provide support vehicles, transportation of your personal luggage, maps of each day’s route, and lots of friendly volunteers.

Once again, we will also offer One-Day Rides on Sunday, September 11, 2016 leaving from and returning to General Washington Pavilion at Washington Crossing State Park, PA. There will be 63-mile and 35-mile options.

In addition, this year we are adding "George & Kinney's Fun Ride-Walk", with family friendly off-road options crossing the historic Washington Crossing Bridge then northward and back via the Delaware Raritan Canal Towpath as far as you care to go up to Bulls Island State Park (anywhere from 1.5 to 36 miles - you choose!).

Can’t ride, run or walk?…join us at Washington Crossing Park on Sunday, September 11, 2016, as all of our 14th annual BAH bike tour participants will again return to the General Washington Pavilion.  The riders are expected to arrive 5:15pm. A delicious barbeque celebration will follow the triumphant entrance of the riders into the park.
