What the riders are saying

"It's so much more than an epic ride (which it is!). This is about being able to give back, and to be the person to help others give back by way of cycling...how wonderful"
“Every little detail was taken care of, support vehicle, accommodation, food & fuel, excellent route planning, beautiful new cycling kit, and memories to last a lifetime for all - children with cancer & cyclists alike. I've already signed up to do it again in 2024!”
"All we need to do is ride our bikes and raise money. Everything else is taken care of for us. It's amazing."
"It is so beautiful out here. It's some of the best riding I've ever done."
"...It's honestly a chance of a lifetime."
"Take the risk. Sign up. Don't be intimidated..."

"R2//NYC is a first-class riding experience — human powered from your driveway to Manhattan! The riding is incredible; however its the special connection with Campfire Circle that sets this ride apart. Each evening is spent with Campfire Circle staff participating in Camp ritual, bonding as a team, and learning about how our ride is supporting the real heroes — the brave kids of Campfire Circle. R2//NYC is the perfect way to cap off your cycling season."


"There simply isn’t a bike ride like R2//NYC. Five days of challenging riding on roads less travelled through gorgeous and hilly landscapes. Riding on an intimate team, sort of like the pros — all with a sense of Campfire Circle effectively woven in."


"R2//NYC was my athletic highlight of 2018. The ride was a chance for me to ‘do good’ by raising money for Campfire Circle (formerly Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium), while taking on a tough but fun challenge with new people with similar ambitions. Everything from the route to the planning to the accommodations was incredibly well executed. I'll be back for sure!"
