As we get closer to spring, it’s time to make sure you’ve signed up to help with the annual Ride for the Feast planned for May 2nd and 3rd. The two-day, 140-mile charity bike ride is held each May to help Moveable Feast provide meals for people living with HIV and other severe illnesses across Maryland. Over 200 folks pedal from Ocean City, Maryland, to Moveable Feast’s headquarters in East Baltimore. If you can’t ride, there are many other volunteer opportunities available to help make the event a success.
Want to learn more? Attend the upcoming open house on Saturday, March 21st, from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm at Moveable Feast (901 North Milton Avenue, Baltimore). Short tours of the facility will be provided to show potential riders and volunteers more about the organization they will be supporting, and where those donations go.
Veteran riders will be available to tell prospective new riders and volunteers why they choose to participate in the event year after year. Race Pace will also be providing a bike repair and maintenance clinic beginning at 12:15 pm. Onsite ride registration will be available as well as light refreshments.
Attendees can learn more about the other available volunteer opportunities, including pit stop volunteers, medical team, and support and gear (SAG) vehicle drivers. SAG drivers, for example, accompany the riders along the ride course to ensure rider safety and pick up riders as needed.
If you can’t attend the open house, you can find more information, register for the ride or volunteer at Rideforthefeast.org. For more info about Moveable Feast visit Mfeast.org. For more about the open house, visit Bit.ly/2TNT3UE. t
