TD Bank is Kids’ Best Friend at Bergen Bike Tour

TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, will sponsor the Bergen Bike Tour Kids’ Event at the 17th annual Bergen Bike Tour, on Sunday September 30, at Darlington County Park.  The TD Bank Kids’ Event includes a Kids’ Ride for children 10 and under, held on a special course where youngsters can ride their Big Wheels, tricycles, and training wheel bikes in a safe and entertaining environment.  Fire trucks will be on site for children to explore, and clowns will cheer on our young riders.  After the Kids’ Ride, there will be face painting, pumpkin painting, crafts, games and prizes.

"We are proud to support the Bergen Bike Tour and the Volunteer Center of Bergen County,” said Joanne Westphal, Retail Market Manager for TD Bank in Bergen County. “The Kids’ Ride not only supports a great cause, but also helps promote a fun and healthy lifestyle.”

 “TD Bank has supported the Bergen Bike Tour for many years.  We are thrilled that they will once again sponsor our Kids’ Event, which is always a favorite with the families,” says Phil Murphy, chairman of the event.  “The enthusiastic support of their employees makes the Bergen Bike Tour the fun and successful event that it is.”

In addition to the Kids’ Event, the Bergen Bike Tour features a 50-, 25- and 10- mile routes for cyclists of every level. The day is capped off with a fun-filled barbeque, music and family-focused entertainment.  Proceeds from the Bergen Bike Tour benefit Tomorrows Children’s Fund at Hackensack University Medical Center and the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, both of which have been the beneficiaries of this event since its inception.

Registration is now open!  For further information about becoming a corporate sponsor, or organizing a group to participate in the Bike Tour visit the website at
