Out of an abundance of caution, the American Lung Association has adjusted plans for the 2021 Cycle the Seacoast for the safety of our participants, volunteers, staff, and partners. We will not be having a physical event on May 2nd, but we will host a virtual Cycle the Seacoast which you can participate in from now through June 30th. We hope that you will participate in our virtual event and stay connected with us. More details below! View our full press release announcement.
GET READY TO CYCLE YOUR WAY
Let’s ride together virtually! Join our Cycle the Seacoast Strava Club. Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone to track your miles as you cycle in support of the American Lung Association. See other people’s mileage and routes as you connect with fellow cyclists. Find out more here!
We are excited to offer a virtual participation option for cyclists to participate in the Cycle the seacoast from the comfort of your own community. Earn commemorative items and incentives as you fundraise and participate virtually.
How it works:
Challenge yourself to complete the mileage of your chosen route (25, 50 or 100 miles) by June 30th! Do it at your own pace; get those miles in over the course of a week or two, even a month (or more) if needed. You can follow the Cycle the Seacoast route maps (below) if you’d like to cover the original route or choose your own route!
Share your mileage and achievements on your social media channels and with donors and friends to encourage continued fundraising support.
Keep us updated! We want to hear from you and chat with you as you ride. Stay active in our Facebook Group and by sharing updates on your personal fundraising page. Utilize graphics located in your participant center as you achieve your mileage goals. Send us photos and let us know when you’ve completed your ride (not required but encouraged): Melissa.Walden@Lung.org.
Every participant that reaches the fundraising minimum of $200 (or more) by June 30th will receive their 2021 Cycle the Seacoast t-shirt and commemorative medal (plus any earned incentives) in the mail. You are not required to complete any cycling mileage to participate in this virtual event.
When: Now through June 30, 2021 Registration fee: $25 Fundraising minimum: $200 Mileage: Choose a goal of 25, 50 or 100 miles (optional)
Now more than ever the American Lung Association needs your support! The Lung Association's COVID-19 Action Initiative is a comprehensive $25M initiative to end COVID-19, fund research and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.
This year will be our 12th ride in support of the 36 million Americans suffering from lung diseases, like COPD, asthma and lung cancer — the #1 cancer killer in the United States. As cyclists, you know how important it is to have healthy lungs and clean air to breathe. By joining us and hundreds of others for Cycle the Seacoast, you’ll be supporting:
Education for patients and families
Advocacy for clean air and protection from harmful air pollution.
Thank you for supporting healthy lungs and clean air, because when you can’t breathe, nothing else matters.
Join us for our Winter Wellness Series now through March! These online events are interactive, fun, and informative. Whether you’re training for Cycle the Seacoast or just want to learn more about nutrition and outdoor activities, we have something that will interest you!
