The Story

EVENT DATE: Jan 17, 2016

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jan 25, 2016

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Jan 15, 2016

This year will be the 4th annual Back Alley bike-a-thon event, Bike the Blizzard: Arctic Road. This year we're hoping to raise 15k (not far from the high water mark we hit last year, ending at 14k total). Half that money will be used to sponsor youth going to the Youth Bike Summit in Minneapolis in May of 2016,  as it has been traditionally used to do, and the rest will go into our general operating fund, to pay for things like locks & helmets, water bottles and snacks for kids during our programming. 

This event, as in years past, is a 24-hour ride-your-legs off endeavor. Riders will raise as much as they can and ride as much as they can. Riders can register, raise, and ride as individuals, or in teams. 

This year the prize structure will work as such:

The rider/team to raise the most the week before the event will win a custom screen-printed bike the blizzard winter kit.

Other prizes will be calculated after the ride and will go to:

The top rider & team that ride the farthest

The top rider & team that raise the most money

Donations are due the week after the event, but you are welcome to turn them in earlier.

All riders will be offered a cycling computer, ride bib, and poster.
