The Bergen Bike Tour was created in 1995 as a fun way to bring people together and fund-raise for two area non-profit organizations aimed at helping Bergen residents in need. Over the past 19 years, the tour has raised over $1 million with funding going directly to the Volunteer Center of Bergen County and Tomorrows Children’s Fund, a nonprofit providing services to families affected by pediatric cancer and serious blood disorders. This year, the MM&B Bergen Bike Tour has targeted $200,000 in fundraising efforts and hopes to meet that goal.
