TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour

Come ride with HNF for CMT awareness.

The TD Five Boro Bike Tour will take place

on August 22, 2021.

HNF has been fortunate enough to participate in the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour as a charity rider for America’s largest cycling event. This means more participants riding to increase awareness of Charcot-Marie-Tooth, and thousands more dollars raised to fund research into treatments and a cure.

HNF Riders get VIP treatment, which includes breakfast and lunch as well as priority start, special bike parking at the start, and a Team CMT singlet. The event provides participants the unique and fun experience to bike through all five boroughs – a 40 mile, traffic-free ride for 32,000 cyclists. Starting just north of Battery Park, the tour runs up Manhattan, through Central Park, around a brief loop in the Bronx and down to the Queensboro Bridge passing countless New York City icons on the way. After a ride over the Pulaski bridge passing through Brooklyn, riders enjoy an incredible view from the lower deck of the Verrazano Bridge.

“The Five Boro Bike Tour was a great way to fundraise for the collective good of CMT research and to bond with fellow CMT’ers, their families and friends. It was humbling in a sense, as I am well aware of the range of symptoms individuals with CMT of all types can present: so I was equally thankful that our little team made it. I would like to suggest that the CMT shirts have the term ‘Hills Suck’ blazoned across the back next year.” – Herbie Joe Rorke CMT1A Patient

“The Five Boro Bike Tour was such a great experience! A well-organized and well-supported event with good music and performers along the way and at the finish to keep you entertained. It’s also a great way to see the city and meet a lot of wonderful and inspiring people. I feel so fortunate to have been a part of Team CMT for this event—looking forward to doing it again next year!” – Kara Sprague Caregiver and Family Member
