Join the Bikes Not Bombs Community on a Bike Ride for Social Change!

We are excited to announce that the 34th annual Bike-A-Thon will be in-person on September 12th, 2021! Register to ride one of four scenic routes: 10 mile, 30 mile, 50 mile, or 100 mile road routes. Each route will be fully supported with rest stops, food, and route markings. Your participation will support work that is needed more than ever, including:

  • The reclamation of bikes for use in unique local and international social justice projects;
  • Opportunities for youth and adults to gain hands-on skills while working to build a more sustainable world;
  • Meaningful jobs and professional mentorship for Boston teenagers and young adults; and 
  • The expansion of a thriving, equitable bike culture, locally and globally. 

Riders of all ages are encouraged to participate by registering and meeting their fundraising minimums:

Age Registration Fee Fundraising Minimum Participant Email Required
Adults 18+ $30 $200 Yes
Youth 15-17 (may ride alone with signed waiver from parent/guardian) $30 $100 Yes
Youth 12-14 (must ride with parent/guardian) $30 $100 Preferred, but if not, can fundraise on parent/guardian team page

$1,500 Event T-shirt, BNB cycling socks, BNB tote bag or cycling cap, and BNB jersey or hoodie

*T-shirts will be available for pick up at the Bikes Not Bombs Hub (284 Amory Street in Jamaica Plain) beginning September 7th.

Please note that we are keeping up with all CDC recommendations with respect to COVID-19 safety precautions. We will communicate any necessary safety guidelines to all participants before the ride. 

If riding is not for you, we would still love to have you join us. We need over 150 volunteers to make our Bike-A-Thon a success. Volunteer registration is free! Just click on the button above to learn more and sign up. 

Spread the Word
We encourage riders to take photos and videos for BNB to share using the hashtags #BAT2021 and #BikeForSocialChange. We also encourage riders to follow us on social media and tag BNB in their posts.

We can't wait to spend the day with you, using the bicycle as a vehicle for social change!
