The annual Rock to Rock Earth Day Ride is coming up on April 28th, 2018. Rock to Rock is a fundraising event benefiting more than two dozen local organizations focused on environmental sustainability in various forms. Elm City Cycling has been an integral part of Rock to Rock from the beginning. In addition to helping organize the ride guides, we are proud to step up to be a ‘Rock Solid’ sponsor.

For its tenth edition, Rock to Rock has some new plans in store including:

  • A new 5-mile family parade route, complete with banners, floats, and more.
  • A special 10th Anniversary Bonus Fund — created by MFUNd with support from Faxon Law Group — adding $10 for every $50 donated or raised.
  • Better-than-ever rest stops, routes, and support for the riders.
  • A call to action to create a just & healthy climate, from Rock to Rock.

Please consider joining the Elm City Cycling team, as either a rider or a volunteer, and directing a portion of your pledged funds to help support our mission to make greater New Haven friendlier, safer, and more accessible to pedestrians and people on bikes.
