Join us for Folks on Spokes Ride and the Walk for Suicide Awareness to raise funds, promote mental wellness, and show support for people on their road to recovery from the challenges of a mental illness or addiction.
Cyclists of all levels enjoy the scenic, mapped routes around the Connecticut shoreline. Distances are 5, 10, 20 and 40 miles or any combination of these routes for a longer ride. The rest stops along the route offer water, fruit and snack bars. Restroom facilities are also available at several points along the ride.
All riders must wear a bicycle helmet and follow safe cycling practices throughout their ride.
The walking route is 3.1 miles along the Milford shoreline, from the harbor to Fort Trumbull Point and return. There is a rest stop at Fort Trumbull Point where walkers can take time to reflect on and honor the lives of those lost to suicide.
Teams welcome! Breakfast and music provided from 10:30-noon.
