Bicycling / Triking Tour
June 25 - July 2, 2018
Buffalo - Albany, NY

Erie Canal picture Join us for a lovely cruise along America's historic canal trail, make new friends, and help spread HHT & Stroke awareness for freedom and recovery from Stroke & Brain Injury through Adaptive Cycling.

Be a part of our team as we cycle our way along the mostly off-road path that follows the old Erie Canal. This is an 8-day tour of moderate daily mileage on nearly flat terrain (including one rest day). Many stops along the way allow us to observe historic locks in operation, check out museums, cafes and other trail-side attractions, such as Fort Stanwix, where you'll find American Revolution-era costumed guides.

Cost for entire tour, including room & board:  $800
Erie Canal picture All proceeds support the Spokes Adaptive Cycling program and this tour; SFS is an all-volunteer organization.

We are hauling a 2015 Keystone Cougar 33' RV trailer with 3 slide-outs, which sleeps up to 6 (comfortably), and has indoor & outdoor kitchens, incl. extra storage. Also bringing a 20' enclosed trike trailer pulled by van or Suburban. This tour includes all the glamping amenities you could want: gourmet coffee every morning, great companionship, plenty of good home-cooked meals, snacks, Gatorade, and daily SAG support along the route.

If you can't make it for the tour, you can still help us out by purchasing a commemorative shirt (coming very soon), or simply by donating here (PayPal or checks accepted). Every bit helps!

East Coast Freedom Ride logo Join us for the trip of a lifetime, make new friends, and help spread HHT & Stroke awareness for freedom and recovery from Stroke & Brain Injury through Adaptive Cycling.

Be a part of our team as we cycle our way along the East Coast Greenway (30-40% is off-road paths—some paved, some not, the rest on quiet byways), from Maine to the Florida Keys. The tour consists of two-week riding segments (with 1-2 rest days after every 5-6 ride days). These are interspersed with one-week breaks in one location to present at stroke rehab centers and hospitals, along with media interviews. Guest riders are invited to engage with the stroke community as part of our outreach efforts, by participating in trike demonstrations and ride events along the route.

You don't have a trike? No problem - use an SFS trike!
