2022 New York State to Boston Tour

Herkimer, NY to Boston, MA - August 19-27

August 19 - 27

  •  

    Join the Stroke Across America cross country riders on the last leg of their journey. Begin your 9-day, 290 mile trip in “upstate” New York, ride through Albany into Massachusetts, and traverse the state to end at the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Boston. This area of New York and New England is hilly with short, steep climbs as we leave the Albany area and cross into Western Massachusetts; the hilliest portion of the state. We will cycle through mostly heavily treed, rural areas with quiet roads, forests and traditional quaint New England villages with the typical white-steepled churches and open green commons. We finish our tour along the myriad of bike and pedestrian trails along the famous Charles River into Boston and to the shore town of Winthrop. 

    This tour has been created to support Stroke Across America – a 4,400-mile ride across America to raise awareness about stroke, aphasia and the need to support the emotional journey in recovery. We are asking all participants to contribute to the campaign.

    The tour itinerary is offered to support Stroke Across America – a 4400-mile journey across America led by stroke survivor Debra Meyerson and her husband Steve Zuckerman. They are riding to raise awareness about stroke, aphasia and the need to more fully support the emotional journey in recovery from traumas like stroke. Each participant on this tour is asked to contribute at least $250 to the Stroke Onward Stroke Across America campaign. You can make your donation here, or by going to: https://strokeonward.org/donate. If you join our tour we will share your contact information with Stroke Onward, and they will share more information about Stroke Across America and ways you can get more involved if you would like. (Sharing participant information is contrary to our standard policy, but we are doing so as this tour was designed in support of their work.)
