With a little bit (OK, for some riders, a LOT) of rain, the 5th Annual Christina Clarke Genco Mother’s Day Memorial Ride was a great success, with over 100 riders enjoying four routes on great spring day.

Following our Spring Benefit on Friday night at UFORGE Gallery, we enjoyed the tunes of the Boston University band, saw old faces and met new ones, taught adorable future cyclists about how to be safe on their bicycles, changed flat tires, and had a wonderful time soaking up the sun after a damp and brisk ride.

Many thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers, local police, and especially you, the donors and riders, who make all of this possible year after year.

Just CLOUDY in the forecast!

Looks like tomorrow (like the past week in Boston) will be only a little cloudy for our annual Memorial Ride, leaving behind the crazy rain from the past week. We’re going to be there rain or shine!

Keep in mind that you can always sign up for the ride the morning of — so if you haven’t already signed up, meet us at Newton City Hall to register.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

Sending Support After a Fatal Cycling Accident

We were extremely saddened to learn about the death of Patrick Wanninkhof, a Bike & Build cyclist who was tragically killed in Oklahoma after being struck from behind by a vehicle while en route from Maine to Santa Barbara — the same cycling route that Christina completed in 2009.

Our thoughts, prayers, and support are with Patrick’s family, with Patrick’s riding partner Bridget Anderson who suffered several broken bones from the accident, and with all of the other Bike & Builders still on the road.
