Bike-A-Thon: Ride Details

Join us for the 35th annual Bike-A-Thon on September 11th, 2022!

Preparing for the Ride

Registering to Ride

Riders can register as individuals or as part of a team. Some of our biggest fundraisers have been part of a team, either with their friends, family members, or their co-workers! You can find more information about registration here.

Fundraising

Riders can manage and view their fundraising efforts on the same site where they register here. You can find detailed instructions for how to set up your fundraising page, how to collect funds, how to meet your fundraising minimum, and more.

What Should I Bring?

  • Bring your helmet! All riders are required to wear a helmet.
  • A water bottle
  • We also recommend bringing sun protection: sunscreen, sunglasses, and a cycling cap with a visor are all good options. 
  • Please bring any needed inhalers, EpiPens or medication that you might need and keep it with you at all times during the ride.
  • If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, you may want to bring along some of your own snacks for extra fuel. Food provided will include fruit, coffee & tea, water, sports drinks, peanut butter & jelly, bread, yogurt, and granola for breakfast and snacks; and a delicious and filling lunch with many vegetarian and vegan options.

Getting Here

All of the Bike-A-Thon routes will be leaving from 100 Boylston St. in Jamaica Plain, MA 02130, right by the Stony Brook MBTA station on the Orange Line and the Southwest Corridor bike path.

You can take the Orange Line to the start, ride your bike, get a ride, or drive your own car. 

Bikes are allowed on the Orange Line and the Commuter Rail during the weekends, and you can view more information about bringing bikes on the MBTA here. Per the MBTA website, bikes are not allowed on station platforms at Downtown Crossing, Government Center, or Park Street. 

Car parking is limited, so please stay tuned for an updated parking map for recommended nearby streets. Always make sure to check signage!
