Out of an abundance of caution to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the American Lung Association has adjusted plans for the Autumn Escape Bike Trek for the safety of our participants, volunteers, staff and partners.
Every Mile Counts
Given COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 Autumn Escape Bike Trek will be a two-day ride along Cape Cod, MA taking place September 25-26. This year will mark our 37th ride in support of the American Lung Association’s mission of saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through research, education, and advocacy. A portion of the funds raised will also support the Lung Association’s COVID-19 Action Initiative- a $25M initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.
We will also offer a fantastic virtual option for those who can’t make it in person. More information coming soon! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Nicole at AEBT@Lung.org with any questions in the meantime.

Looking for a different type of challenge?
Cycle Your Way is the perfect adventure for cyclists not able to participate in person. Choose a personal challenge for you and your team or for a solo ride, whether that be indoor cycling or cycling outdoors on a path or in a neighborhood near you. It’s your challenge, your way.
As a Cycle Your Way participant, you and your team are an important part of the Autumn Escape Bike Trek. No matter when, how or where you participate, you will be active alongside a large community helping those fighting for every breath. Join the Autumn Escape Bike Trek for the challenge and for a world free of COVID-19 and lung disease.
In order to make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a Autumn Escape Bike Trek 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.
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.
