What is Ride Of Dreams?

RoDs is a unique experience in charitable cycling events.

It is equal parts:

  • NBW fundraising event
  • Empowering youth program (NBW youth train and tackle the cycling challenge with the adult fundraisers)
  • Challenging multi-day cycling trip

The RoDs is an exceptional opportunity to not only raise money for a worthy cause, but spend four days cycling with some of the very youth who are supported by the programs you are helping to fund.
The ride is purposely kept small to promote a sense of family between youth and adults during the ride. To that end we seek out organizations in the local communities to provide facilities allowing us to stay together as a group and reduce our costs. The RoDs is truly a memorable event for everyone involved.

This Year's Ride

This year we will ride from Philadelphia into the rolling hills of Lancaster. With stops in Hershey and many points in between, the ride is sure to challenge and thrill just about any youth or adult rider. The ride is a beautiful four-day loop (approx. 250 miles) leaving from and returning to Philadelphia.
