Hello everyone,

As many of us are still reeling from what has been a tough winter season, there are others who are beginning to think about Spring, and warm weather, and being able to go outside without several layers of clothing . . .

This newsletter is for the latter group; we want to let you know it’s OK to think about going outside in spandex, and riding on your bike, training to get in shape and preparing once again to meet up with your August family in Burlington.

We have many things brewing, so to speak, for this year’s event, so please, read on . . .


As mentioned in our previous newsletter, the route for 2014 will change significantly. We’ve also got changes in store for camps (a brand new one on one day, the return of a camp from previous years on another, and a modification of a third).

Yes we know we’re being cagey on the details; we’re still fine tuning everything and will be releasing more info as it becomes available. Can you feel the suspense building ?


We currently have 20 registered participants for the 2014 event.

Are you one of them? If not, why ??

All you have to do is visit our website at charitytreks.org and click on the “REGISTER ONLINE” button at the top of the page.


We’re still shooting for 75 riders, 35 crew and $150,000 in donations. Are you up to helping achieve this somewhat modest goal?

Check your calendar and consider registering. Call up or email friends who may be interested and send them to the website. Begin fundraising early and use it as motivation to train (yes, there will be hills).

In short, we are reaching out to you to help continue the accomplishments made thus far in finding a vaccine.
