OCC Annual Charity Century Ride

B.I.K.E. SyracuseProceeds will benefit b.i.k.e. Syracuse a program for inner city kids:

b.i.k.e. Syracuse:  Bicycles and Ideas for Kids Empowerment

We work with children from low income families between the ages of 8 – 14 through a program of Adventure bicycling and learning through experience. The b.i.k.e. experience provides a sense of belonging while working with the whole child building physical fitness, academic achievement, and self-discipline, while having fun. Our program includes tutoring, excursions to parks, museums and races, participation in community and cultural events. Breakfast and lunch is provided. The bicycle is a tool that we use to encourage children to race after their dreams and challenge their fears.
