1 in 8 people in Western Massachusetts struggle to put food on the table. Will Bike 4 Food (WB4F) was created as a fun and active cycling event that allows participants of all levels to join in the fight against hunger. Now in its 4th year, WB4F has brought together hundreds of dedicated individuals, businesses and teams who have raised more than $135,000. All courses begin and end at The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Following the ride, participants are treated to music, food, and beer from Berkshire Brewing Company!
Choose from a 10, 25, 50, or 100 mile route through the beautiful Pioneer Valley.
You can ride as an individual, or start a team with your friends, family or co-workers.
All funds raised from this important event support the mission of The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts in its work with the community to feed our neighbors in need. Every $1 raised can help provide $9 worth of food – that’s over 3 meals! At The Food Bank, our services stay local, and go directly to Western Massachusetts residents in need.
Make your fund-raising efforts go even further by recruiting friends, family, and co-workers to form a team (4 or more) and join you for the ride! Assign a co-captain to help mentor new team members, plan fund-raising activities, lead training rides, follow up with goals and progress, and provide support. It’s easy to get started!
When your company chooses to ride in WB4F, you take part in something unique. You join the ranks of some of the most passionate people in the region—people who care about cycling, health, and, above all, a hunger-free community. Starting a corporate team is a great way to engage employees and customers, build moral, and promote team-building!
