18th Annual Ride for The Refuge - Shades Beach Location

on Monday, Sept. 4, 2017 (Labor Day) 

Pedal for a purpose at the 18th Annual Ride for The Refuge on Labor Day and enjoy a great day of bicycling while helping to end homelessness for families with children.

The Ride for The Refuge is a charity bicycle ride featuring scenic tours of various distances at each of our two event locations: Shades Beach in East Erie County and Albion Borough Park in West Erie County.  This is not a race, but an event for bicycle enthusiasts of all abilities.  Participants will enjoy a great ride through scenic country, water/snack stops along the way, sag wagon services and our free (and fabulous) Riders' Picnic.

Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. Start times are as follows:

  • 8:00 a.m.: 100k and 50 mile routes
  • 8:30 a.m.: 50k and 25k routes

EUMA's The Refuge is the only homeless shelter system in the region that keeps dads, moms and children together through their housing crisis.  In 2016, The Refuge ended immediate homelessness for 105 families, including 208 children.
