Join us for the 1st VIRTUAL Wine Country Bike Trek
2020: The 1st Virtual Wine Country Bike Trek
In a time of social distancing, finding new ways to stay fit and have fun is more important than ever. Due to the current physical/social distancing order, we decided that instead of cancelling the bike trek we all know and love, we’re giving everyone the opportunity to keep training and fundraising to support PHP while our clients need us now more than ever.
We hope you’ll join us by registering and riding your favorite 30 or 50 mile route near home any time during the month of June. We’ll be announcing ways soon for you to share your progress with your fellow bike trekkers on our social media accounts.
The spirit of the Wine Country Bike Trek is community, family, and friends, and we hope you’ll keep that spirit alive even while we ride separately. We guarantee you’ll walk away with new friends and fantastic memories. Best of all, the proceeds from the Bike Trek make a difference in the lives of those in need, now more than ever.
Fundraising is not required to participate, however we highly encourage both riders and volunteers to raise funds. You’ll receive a fundraising page that can be customized and shared with your friends and family via email or on your social media. We’ll say thanks for your fundraising efforts with a variety of great prizes.
Entry fees and donations raised from the Wine Country Bike Trek help support People Helping People’s emergency and basic needs programs, including our Food Program, which provides groceries to over 1,300 people bi-weekly; health care access for adults and children that are underinsured and uninsured; and programs such as mentoring and counseling for children and teens.
Testimonials from the Wine Country Bike Trek
“I rode with my wife Carolyn and friends, Richard and Christine from Chicago. The rides were well laid out and well marked. They were tough but fair. My friends had such a good time riding, enjoying dinner and listening to the music each evening that they are planning on returning next year.” – Mike Balaban, a member of PHP’s Board of Directors and avid cyclist, rode 50 miles on all three days.
