Hello Everyone,

As everyone is probably in full swing for the holiday season, this will be a short and sweet newsletter with just the basics and a quick update. We’ll return to our usual, long-winded selves in the New Year.

Merry Christmas to all, joy and prosperity, and hug the ones you love.

2013 EVENT

The 2013 event is from Burlington, VT to Portland, ME. It will be held from Monday, August 12 to Friday, August 16, 2013. Onsite registration will take place on Sunday, August 11 at our host hotel, which will be the Sheraton Burlington Hotel.

If you need a unique Christmas gift to give this year, consider paying someone’s registration fee and giving them a Charity Treks Gift Certificate. It’s a great way to have someone you care about accompany you on the ride to find out the mystique behind the Charity Treks family.

You can e-mail David for more details on this.


The registration numbers, as of today, for the 2013 event are as follows:
19 riders & 7 crew. Feel free to add to these numbers by registering !!


We have continued to update our website after feedback that some of the content referred to previous events. We will continue to work on it so that it is a valuable source of information for our current and potential riders and crew.


Same goes for the forms, flyers and other marketing material. We will have some new flyers in the new year that we will post to the website so that we can get the word out about the event.


We are planning some route changes this year, particularly for Day One in Vermont leading into the Black Bear Inn.

Mark, David and Quinn are planning a mapping trip sometime in February 2013 to scope out the terrain. As the dates for the trip are finalized, we will communicate them in case some of the locals would like to come out and meet us (for breakfast, or supper).
