Sunday’s Ride has been cancelled due to the impending inclement weather – But tomorrow’s Benefit is still on!

Dear Friends,

The Board of the CCG Foundation has been carefully monitoring the weather reports over the last few days and last night we made the decision to cancel the Mother’s Day Ride due to inclement weather.  As an organization focused on Safe Biking, our first priority is always rider safety and Sunday’s predicted heavy winds and rain make for potentially dangerous riding conditions.

While we’re obviously disappointed to cancel this year’s ride, please join us at our Spring Benefit this Friday May 12, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at M Fine Arts Galerie (61 Thayer Street Boston, MA 02118 )

While this event doesn’t involve your bike it will showcase pieces of Christina’s Art, a silent auction, food, wine & beer, and lots of fun people!  

Funds raised from the Spring Benefit support our Safe Biking Fund including our signature bike light handout program.  Tickets for the Spring Benefit can be purchased on the foundation website.  This event is always well attended and a great time.  We hope you will join us!

See you soon!
The CCG Foundation


5th Annual Mother’s Day Memorial Ride a Success!

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.

Join us for the 5th Annual Ride

Sending Support After a Fatal Cycling Accident


[image being circulated on social media following the 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.
