Register Now for the Bergen Bike Tour

Sign up now for Bergen Bike Tour! This family-fun event on Sunday, September 25, benefits the Volunteer Center of Bergen County and Tomorrows Children’s Fund.  The event ride features routes for cyclists of every ability from novice to expert!   Each ride begins and ends at Darlington Park, in Mahwah, and family fun includes a special Kids’ Ride, barbeque, clowns, face painting, crafts, music, games, prizes and more!

You can register any of four ways - 1) Online at http://bergenbiketour.org/signup.htm; 2) Download and print a registration form; 3) Call 1-877-BER-BIKE; or 4) Register at the event on 9/26/10.

All riders are expected to turn in $100 per individual or $200 per family (4 members), with all proceeds split between two outstanding organizations:  the Volunteer Center of Bergen County and Tomorrows Children’s Fund.  Every pre-registered rider will receive 5 silicone bracelets to give as a 'thank you' to friends and family who support your ride.

Several local companies are stepping up to support the Bergen Bike Tour:  TD Bank; Peterson’s, a Nelnet Company; Apax Partners; Jamis Bicycles; Inserra Shoprite; Oritani Bank Charitable Foundation; and PNC Bank. Sponsorship opportunities begin at $500, and sponsors of $1,000 or more get their logo on the t-shirt and can register an unlimited number of employees at no extra charge. (All riders are expected to raise at least $100 - $200 for families - in donations.)
