Yes, we’re still pedaling on May 23rd!

One of New England’s premier charity bicycle rides!

A safe and exceptional experience for our riders and volunteers has always been our top priority. The traditional AngelRide welcomes many opportunities for people to gather. That will not be possible this spring, so we are working hard on the when and how to keep our community together and also continue our good work of helping children who have survived life-altering burn injuries.

We will ride together on May 23rd one way or another!
We’re working out the details and will share those soon. 

We hope you are well, that you can find some calm. Continue to get outside and ride your bicycle or use any other means to enjoy this beautiful earth. We will see each other soon, if only virtually at first.

AngelRide supports The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp: A safe, natural outdoor environment for kids ages 8 to 18 from around the world who have survived life-altering burn injuries.


If you are not already receiving emails from AngelRide, please sign up to receive updates on our evolving AngelRide event on May 23 and others in the near future!

You could see the impact on every smiling face, the sparkle in every eye.

By Gerald Payfer A different road brought each of us to AngelRide. Whether you were faced with the effects of cancer or knew someone who had been; whether you are a burn survivor or know someone who is, we join together as an AngelRide community to make a difference in children’s lives.
