COURAGE. DETERMINATION. COMMUNITY. HOPE.

On September 7, 2024, we’ll ride together in the 14th Annual Closer to Free Ride. And we need you with us. The Ride fuels research and care at Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Cancer Center while giving riders of all levels the chance to experience five professionally designed and fully supported routes ranging from 10 to 100 miles long. If you’re not in the New Haven area, you can join our community remotely and ride your own route wherever
you may be.

Hope Rides with Us.
