2014 Five Borough Bike Tour – I’m riding

The Five Borough Bike Tour is an annual event in which tens of thousands of New Yorkers ride 40 or 50 miles from lower Manhattan up through the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and over the Verrazano Narrows Bridge to Staten Island.  For the last three years I’ve supported a wonderful organization called Bronxworks (http://bronxworks.org/) that helps families in need in The Bronx.  I ride with a number of friends, some of whom live in the Bronx, and all of whom have adopted this wonderful group.

I rode with the Bronxworks team in 2011 and 2012 but a conflict prevented me from riding in 2013, though I donated to support the rest of the team.  Fortunately for me I will be riding again this year.  If you want to contribute to Bronxworks in support of my ride you may visit my fundraising page http://www.crowdrise.com/BronxWorks2014BikeTour/fundraiser/marcdonner.  If you do so, I will be eternally grateful!
