ECPAT-USA: End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children wrote -
On May 3rd, 2015, 32,000 cyclists from all over the globe will come together to ride 40 miles on New York City streets, over the bridges, across the avenues, and throughout the 5 boroughs. For one day, the streets of New York are for bikes only. No cars, the road is yours.
The TD Five Boro Bike Ride is the world’s largest charitable bike ride, benefiting organizations like ECPAT-USA. This year ECPAT-USA was selected to be a charity partner and is organizing a team of riders to join us in the fight against trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Your participation will help ensure that no child is bought, sold, or used for sex.
Registration opens on January 20th! This ride is open to all levels.
