AngelRide Re-Imagined: An Event to Remember!

It's all about the experience. 
One day. One location. 
Wait until you see what's new!

This close knit community focuses on the extraordinary cause supporting tens of thousands of hospitalized children through epic fundraising efforts.

Join us Saturday, May 27th

Based out of the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp (started by Paul Newman in 1988 as an escape for seriously ill children) AngelRide has something to offer for everyone, not just road warriors.

  • Road riders will be riding 25, 50 or 75 miles through central Connecticut. Their backdrop; quaint towns, open farmland and iconic woodlands.
  • Little Angels, who are 7-11 years old can sign up for the 4.5 course.
  • Teen Angels who are 12-14 years old can sign up to take part in the 25-mile ride
  • Mountain bikers can ride 10 miles of the beautiful trails around the two hundred acre Camp.
  • Combo mountain bike and road ride. Mountain bike 10 miles and then get on the road for either 25 or 50 miles. 
  • Runners can circle on the beautiful lakeside trails for a full 5K.
  • Walkers can take a leisurely or brisk 3 mile walk to some of the most isolated parts of the Camp property.

Aiming to be a day of merriment and joy, invited guests are also invited to participate:

  • Archery
  • Fishing
  • Mini-golf
  • Arts & crafts
  • As well as the central fun center (the Cabin Circle) with many additional activities.

Bonus: Overnight Experience

Road riders are invited to stay overnight at Camp on Friday evening and partake in dinner in the dining hall followed by entertainment in the theater by a world renowned musical artist. Then enjoy a restful night in the special cabins that have housed tens of thousands of Campers over the past 29 years. So come join us and be part of the extraordinary AngelRide community that has changed their lives by making a real difference in the lives of others. This offer is for registered road riders. Space is limited and offered in order of registration, but you must sign up.
