5th Annual Woony River Ride
Saturday, September 20, 2014
Last year we had 278 riders and raised $21,000.
In its 5th year, we have 5 choices of rides, and our goal is to have 500 riders and raise $50,000.00!!!
Get on your bike and explore the Woonasquatucket River from Providence to bucolic North Smithfield and come full circle after you connect through our sister path, the Blackstone Valley Bike Path!
We have more options for this, our 5th Annual bike-a-thon fundraiser for the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council! Ride 62, 50, 30, 10 or 5 miles with full support from our brilliant and steadfast team of volunteers.
The Woony Ride brings out families and avid cyclists from the all over the region to enjoy the beauty of the Woonasquatucket River, a historic asset to the state of Rhode Island. It’s a fully supported ride, and it ends with an AFTER-PARTY at Waterplace Park in Downtown Providence - live music, food, and awesome prizes for fundraisers!
