Upcoming Events

TD Five Boro Bike Tour

Our first-ever Athletes For Accessibility team hits the road on Sunday, May 7, 2023, in New York City.

We want you on our team for America’s largest charitable bike ride!

Pedal through New York City for Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF) and push yourself to move life-changing research and innovation toward an accessible future.

New to cycling? No problem! Cyclists of all skill levels come to New York City from around the world to roll through every borough on totally car-free streets.

For one day, the roads are yours, the bridges are yours, the city is yours — and there’s no better way to experience New York and make a difference at the same time!

As a CPARF rider, we’ll set you up with a customizable fundraising page. For this event, riders need to raise at least $1,200. We’re excited to have you and we’ll do everything we can to help you reach your personal fundraising goal.
