Our 29th Annual Cycle for Shelter

was a tremendous success!


Thank you to all who helped support this fabulous event.


It was a perfect day for cycling on Sunday, July 23, as more than 160 cyclists took to the roads around the Merrimack Valley and the seacoast of New Hampshire in our 29th Annual event.  We thank all the cyclists who believe in our mission and challenged themselves mentally and physically to help those facing homelessness rebuild their lives. 


We also thank our event volunteers, many of whom have supported our efforts over the past year. Whether you registered riders, marked routes, helped at a rest

We are also extremely grateful to all our event sponsors who generously supported this year's Cycle for Shelter.  We especially would like to acknowledge our presenting sponsors, 
International Cars and Merrimack Valley Credit Union, our Media Sponsor, WHAV, and our Premier Bike Shop Sponsor, Riverside Cycle.  stop, or made sure our cyclists were well-fed and hydrated after the ride, we appreciate your efforts in making this event one of the most successful charity rides inthe region.
