The 2020 Vermont Adaptive Virtual Charity Ride begins today!

Spring is here and with it comes biking weather! And here at Vermont Adaptive, well, we’re used to being adaptable so we’re adapting!

Welcome to the NEW Vermont Adaptive Charity Ride VIRTUAL EVENT for 2020!  We are determined to celebrate our 10th Anniversary of this event and and encourage everyone to social distance, stay active and healthy, while supporting Adaptive Sports in Vermont.

We’ve created a long-term fundraising virtual ride that complements our traditional event, to raise that critical $300,000 for our programs and athletes. We still must raise these funds, and we’re hoping you’ll play along at home with us!

Vermont Adaptive serves a vulnerable population that is stuck inside right now.  Our community will need us more than ever when this is all over. They will need to get outside and play.

How It Works –

  1. Sign Up for the 10th Annual Vermont Adaptive Charity Ride as a virtual participant. https://charityride.vermontadaptive.org
  2. Join the Free Vermont Adaptive Strava Club and create your individual profile for the virtual ride. https://www.strava.com/clubs/VermontAdaptive 
    1. Use a different App to track your fitness? That’s fine – track your journey however you want but we would love to see proof of your accomplishment!
  3. Then:
    1. Set your fundraising and riding goals.
    2. Ride a stationary bike, ride around town, hit the dirt, walk, stroll, roll, hike, hop on your Peleton or trainers and log your miles using your Strava Club account or your App.
    3. Capture yourself (selfie time!) of you, inside, outside or wherever, and send a pic to pr@vermontadaptive.org with your story of why you’re riding virtually for Vermont Adaptive.
    4. Share your journey on Social Media and make sure to tag Vermont Adaptive.

    5. Create a team and get your community involved virtually (social distancing please!) in healthy activities.
    6. Be on the lookout for weekly prize contests from the Vermont Adaptive Virtual Charity Ride Sponsors
      1. Contests will change weekly and include:
        1. Participant raffles
        2. Top weekly fundraiser
        3. Most miles recorded in a week
        4. Social tagging/sharing raffles

Our hope is to keep you active and healthy through these next few months and have some virtual fun doing it with our new community!

The Road back starts now and everyday is a day closer to play!
