FULL DESCRIPTION: The Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hyannis Port offers supported point-to-point rides of 100, 50 and 20-miles through the scenic New England countryside along world class routes. No matter which distance you choose, you'll be supported from day one as you train, fundraise, and prepare for the event. When you register you'll select from one of the fundraising commitment options and then the fun begins! Our team of expert Coaches will help you map out a training and fundraising plan to help meet your goals. We'll assist with transportation and can even set you up with a bike! And, of course, once you finish the ride we've got a true celebration planned for each and every one of you. 100 Mile Ride: Following a celebratory send off at the famous JFK Presidential Library and Museum on the South Shore of Boston, the challenging century ride begins. After leaving the city of Boston, Riders wind south to the Cape - covering a lot of ground and raising an incredible amount of awareness. 50 Mile Ride: Beginning in Carver, MA, the 50 mile ride is the newest addition to the Audi Best Buddies Challenge. A half-century ride offers participants the chance to push themselves while inspiring others and riding through some of New England's most impressive scenery! 20 Mile Ride: Starting in Sandwich, MA, the 20 mile ride is a great option for families or friends looking for a casual weekend ride through the countryside and along the ocean. This route joins the others in the final miles as we wind our way along the Cape to the finish in Hyannis Port. We also have a Run/Walk event at the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hyannis Port, led by Olympic gold medalist, Carl Lewis. The Carl Lewis Challenge is open to all ages and all abilities and includes a 3K walk and 5K running race. The Run/Walk will take place at the finish location of the ride routes at Craigsville Beach in Hyannis Port. It's a festive and exciting way to include everyone you know. If you're riding, register your family. If you know someone riding (but you yourself aren't quite up for the bike!) register to ride or walk yourself. Click here to join us today!
