ABOUT THE EVENT:
Dates: September 23rd - September 25th
Registration closes on August 26th
Join us for the 2022 Gears for Good! Throughout the ride, HFA provides hotel accommodations, meals, rest stops along the bike route to keep you going, bike maintenance and medical assistance if you need it.
100% of the rider contributions raised go to our Helping Hands program, which provides critically needed funds for the most vulnerable in the bleeding disorders community.
We will Depart Rosslyn/Arlington by bus at 8:00AM, with the bus dropping riders off in Hancock, MD. From there, we will ride west on the Western Maryland Rail Trail. We will return to Hancock where we will continue the ride and end the night in Williamsport, MD at the Red Roof Inn, exploring the town on the way.
We will ride from Williamsport to Big Slackwater Boat ramp for lunch, then head to Shepherdstown and end in Harpers Ferry. There will be time to rest, tour Harpers Ferry, or an optional afternoon hike for those who want.
We will ride back to DC and arrive between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM. We will have a celebration afterwards. It will be a perfect opportunity to socialize with other riders and celebrate your accomplishments.
