The Story

EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015

Bike PHifty 2015!

 

In 2013, inspired by Team PHenomenal Hope’s competing in Race Across America to raise funds and awareness for pulmonary hypertension (PH), we created Bike PHifty.  Our 2013 Bike PHifty event included five riders and raised over $5,000.  In 2014, 17 riders participated in Bike PHifty and we raised over $7,000! Now it is time for Bike PHifty 2015!

 

When: Bike PHifty 2015 will be held on Sunday, October 11th.  The ride will start at 8:30am and end at approximately 1:30pm. 

 

Where:    Bike PHifty 2015 will start and end at the Saratoga Spa State Park.  A portion of the 50-mile ride will be through the Saratoga National Historical Park, the site of the Battle of Saratoga (the turning point of the American Revolution).  Friends and family can see riders off at the start, at the battlefield and/or at the end.  Some riders may want to join the group for one or two laps around the battlefield (each lap is 10 miles).
