100 yesterday, 440 expected tomorrow!


Yesterday, 100 people were at Bike4Life, and tomorrow 440 people are expected at the Candidate Forum.


It was an incredible day. One hundred people, ages 3-71, came out yesterday to bike and enjoy a BBQ for the Bike4Life fundraiser in support of safer streets for the Boston region. Collectively, riders have raised $37,406 so far! Help us reach $50,000 by September 30 by donating or by sponsoring a rider today.


"There was true sense of community at the ride and BBQ. I just started riding in the city this past year, and in doing so realized the need for better streets. When I found out about Bike4Life, I signed up right away. The ride was gorgeous and my donation goes to creating real, on the ground change. I will definitely be doing the ride again next year," said Christine Brayfield, Bike4Life rider of Waltham (photo right).


Bike4Life was founded by the Zeeb family in memory of Bob Zeeb who died in an avoidable bicycle incident in 2009 caused by poor signage and road conditions. Sponsor the Zeeb family (photos below) or another rider to help improve our roads and keep our loved ones safe.
