We’re glad you asked! 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 in-person. That’s not possible again this spring so we will continue with AngelRide Remote! Gather virtually, participate individually.
However, we are planning an in-person Appreciation Event for September 12, 2021!
AngelRide has a FUN way to keep our community engaged this May, provide a bit of motivation for training, and encourage a physical challenge – all while staying safe – a PokerRide! We welcome bicyclists, runners, walkers, and volunteers too! (if you’re interested in riding your motorcycle, contact us!) We are thrilled to continue our good work and support the kids at The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp!

As we continue with the safe practice of physical distancing, AngelRide 2021 will not be able to gather our community together in those traditional ways. We are really bummed about that but you know safety is a big thing for us. We will gather at a virtual Opening and a virtual Closing ceremony. Our community will complete their individual AngelRide on a route and distance of their choosing over Memorial Day Weekend May 29-31, 2021. We’re welcoming cyclists (indoors or outdoors), mountain bikers, runners, and walkers! And amazing volunteers will be on hand remotely to cheer and “deal” your PokerRide! cards.

Thanks for switching gears with us!
A poker ride is a cute name for a “poker run”! This is a just fun fundraising game that provides an opportunity for our community to stay connected via texting. Participants will be assigned an AngelRide volunteer to “deal” them cards as they complete sections of their own route. The volunteers will stay in the comfort of their homes. Cyclists, mountain bikers, runners and walkers can challenge themselves by increasing their mileage and collecting more virtual cards. At the virtual Closing ceremony 2 Community Cards will be revealed and a winning hand determined. That person will have a $1,000 donation made in their name to The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp!
You win a lot!
Not in 2021! Participants have 3 days to complete their mileage and collect cards – Memorial Day Weekend, May 29-31, 2021.
For 2022, we plan to return to the in-person 1-day AngelRide Classic….with an AngelRide Remote option as well!
We would love, love, love to return to our in-person “classic” AngelRide in May 2022! Gathering together is important to us all! We’re already working on it and will adapt if necessary – always with our passion for providing an exceptional and safe experience for all. Hey, we will definitely continue with the option of joining in remotely!
