Your donation = meals delivered. The generosity of people like you, reader, enables Moveable Feast to deliver nutritious meals to folks with HIV and their families. Last year, Anne, her amazing team of riders, and their wonderful supporters raised over $19,000! This meant that over 14 people and their families were fed for an entire year thanks to the Bike Curious family!
But I (Robert) am getting ahead of myself. There’s a cycling event behind this. It’s called “Ride for the Feast” (RFTF). It’s a two-day, 140-mile charity bike ride. Day 1 is a 100-mile ride from Ocean City, MD to Wye Mills, MD. There’s an overnight stay at Chesapeake College. Then, on Day 2, riders pedal from Sandy Point into Baltimore City and cross the finish line at Moveable Feast’s East Baltimore headquarters. The ride is 140 miles long because that is the exact distance a Moveable Feast driver must go to deliver to their farthest client. 100% of the money raised by participating riders and crew members goes directly towards putting food on the table for Moveable Feast’s clients.
The 11th annual “Ride for the Feast” takes place next weekend, May 11th-12th, 2013. Interested in riding next year? Watch the org’s website at: www.mfeast.org
