    Save the date it’s time to ride! Our 13th annual “Brake the Cycle of Poverty” ride through the beautiful rolling hills of rural Berks County is August 13th. The event features 4 breathtaking courses: The 62-mile Metric Century rides through all 4 covered bridges in Berks County, a 40-mile gentle rolling hills ride crosses two covered bridges, another with 25 miles of winding backroads, and a flat 10-mile scenic ride perfect for beginners and families too. All four rides feature breath-taking views, rolling hills, winding backroads, best-in-class GPS and SAG support, nourishing rest stops, and well-marked roads. There’s also food, drink, medical massage, music, and more when we’re done.


    This is a beautiful ride for a beautiful cause and we thank you for your help in promoting the event in store, online and through any group calendars you may have. While fundraising is not required to participate, a rider’s sponsorship provides critical financial support to the range of community services we provide. Each rider gets their own crowdsourcing page and those who raise at least $300 receive a Friend, Inc. cycling jersey as our thank you.


    Thank you once again for your support. If you have any questions or need more materials please reach out to me or Cathy Dill our Event Manager at or 610-683-7791.
