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.
Now through June 30, 2021
CYCLE YOUR WAY
We are excited for the reimagined 2021 Cycle the Seacoast virtual format! This year we are doing weekly challenges and prizes, offering new routes to explore and more! We even have a new mobile app to make fundraising easier than ever. Earn commemorative items and incentives as you fundraise and participate virtually.
How it works:
Challenge yourself to complete the mileage of your choice (25, 50 or 100 miles or more!) 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), one of our sample routes or choose your own route!
Keep us updated! We want to hear from you and chat with you as you ride. Posts your rides in our Facebook Group and update 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).
Share your mileage and achievements on your social media channels and with donors and friends to encourage continued fundraising support.
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 can cycle, walk, etc. to get your miles if you’d like. You are not required to complete any 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)
Let’s ride together virtually! Join our Cycle the Seacoast Strava Club sponsored by GEICO-Nashua. 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!
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.
In March, the American Lung Association launched a $25 million initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics. At the same time, we're continuing our advocacy work to support clean air and redoubling our long-term commitments to lifesaving research.
