Our Challenge

  • Judy rode the Ride for Mental Health on Sunday
    24 Jun 2019

    On Sunday Judy rode 11+ miles in this year's Ride for Mental Health. For the second year, she was sponsored for this ride by her meditation group. Some riders opted to ride 50 miles north of New Paltz; others 50 miles south; still others combined the two. No fool Judy, she chose the easier rail trail route!

    The pack rode north, to Rosendale. Fearing being hemmed in, Judy turned southward to Gardiner and had a meditative (and sometimes teeth-chattering) solo ride.

  • Goals are being met -- and exceeded!
    17 Jun 2019

    Congrats to Alex for meeting -- and exceeding -- both her financial and mileage goals. So far, she has brought in the highest contribution AND ridden the most miles. Many others are getting up there in miles and still counting (Amy's stats not in yet).

    As for fund raising, everyone (except me) has met, or exceeded, their goal (Amy's stats not in yet). Fantastic!

    Some of us rode a few times last week. Some are riding this Wednesday, maybe Friday, too.

    And we have the Orange County Heritage Trail ride scheduled for the 30th -- to cap off our month. I'm excited to see how it all adds up. Awesome teamwork!!

    We need photos, please.

  • More miles clocked. Yea team!
    11 Jun 2019

    Some of the group went out this beautiful afternoon. We have at least two members who have clocked more than 50 miles this month (Lindsay and Alex). Congratulations!! I think Amy may be close to that, too, but she's having issues with entering the miles. It is sooo nice to rice with you all -- and soo nice to know you are out there, enjoying the experience. Did you get a photo, by any chance?

  • You GO, Lindsay!
    6 Jun 2019

    Lindsay's really jumping ahead with her miles and is almost half way to her goal. Congratulations, Lindsay!! Everybody's been on their bike some. It's not the world if we don't make our goal, but most of us need to ride at least 20 miles/week to make it.

    We have a group ride scheduled in Orange County for Sunday, June 30. That will give us our last push -- plus be fun!

  • We've reached our $5,000 goal!!!!
    1 Jun 2019

    Just letting everyone know that a SECOND contribution from John Pagliarulo (to the whole team) took us over the top. A special thank you has been sent to let him know this, but just letting you know, in case you want to also thank him.

    So...it's all gravy from here on in (on the $$ front, at least). Now to meet our mileage goals.

  • Kick-Off Ride Was a Success!
    1 Jun 2019

    Some members of our team were able to join our kick-off ride today. We had a good time, the weather was amazing, and we all got in at least 10 miles.

    We don't need to ride all together. Just get out there when you can. And remember to track, and report, your miles. You can use the greatcyclechallenge app, or another app of your choice, or just record your mileage manually.

    Also, don't forget that we are working this as a TEAM. So, even if you have set a personal $$ goal, nobody's counting. We have a lot of the same friends, and there's no need for them to feel conflicted. This is not a contest. Rather, it's the team effort that matters. A contribution to one of us is a contribution to all of us.

  • We're building up steam!
    18 May 2019

    Looks like Sherrill and Lindsay are beating the bushes. Alex, too, who can afford to coast! Good work!! We're at $4,255, not too far from out goal o $5,000.

    I need to get out there, too. Making sure people know we aren't competing, but that any donation, on behalf of any of us, will help us reach our goal.

    Now the hard part: actually getting on that bike!

    We're building up steam!

  • Extraordinary donation!
    11 Apr 2019

    I keep having to raise our donation goal as people contribute. But didn't expect THIS! Alex has not only raised the most from sponsors, but she just snagged a $3,000 donation! All I can say is OMG! Makes me realize I need to get on the ball to raise a little. Looking for suggestions to make us more visible. Sooo good to have you on our team, Alex. For many reasons, of course. This is only one of many.

    Extraordinary donation!

  • 3 Apr 2019

    This June, Hudson Valley Caring Bikers and Walkers (HVCBW) is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So we are raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.

    Judy
