Holiday Ride for a great cause


This Sunday, pump your tires and pick up a Santa Suit, for a fun healthy way to start the holidays!

The Empire Tri Club invites cyclists of all races, religions & nationalities to deck the halls with us and raise money for those in need.  In the spirit of the holidays, we are raising money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation – which provides opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness. Click here to make a donation:  The Empire Tri Club will match all donations up to $1,000.  You don’t have to attend the ride to support the cause and no amount is too big or too small!

The Giro di Santa started 3 years ago when a group of local cyclists decided to combine their favorite things – Cycling + Christmas, which has since led to an epic annual ride.

The ride starts in NYC and meanders throughout the streets of Manhattan, across the George Washington Bridge, along the well traveled cycling route 9W to a coffee shop in Piermont, NY.  After refueling with Milk & Cookies (and Coffee, Hot Cocoa to warm their feet)… cyclists will head back to NYC and loop through Times Square and Rockefeller Plaza before finishing their ride in Central Park.

Details about the event can be found on Facebook.  Spread the holiday cheer and come join our ride, make a donation, or visit us along the route to take photos.

Happy Holidays!
