Cyclist Supports Bermuda While Riding In NYC

June 9, 2015

Local cyclist Eddie Roberts recently used his sporting talents in New York City in order to support charities here at home, with PALS and Bermuda Cancer & Health benefiting from his efforts.

Mr. Roberts participated in a 5-borough, 45 mile charity ride in NYC in May, raising money during the lead up to the event for the two Bermuda charities – a total of approximately $7,600.

Mr. Roberts said, “I have been cycling for almost two years now and wanted to try a ride overseas, so they have a five borough, 45 mile charity ride in New York.

“I signed up and a friend suggested I raise money for charity here, so I decided to select PALS and Bermuda Cancer and Health, as we know one way or another we have all been affected by the disease.

“The ride was a great experience. Al roads through the five boroughs of New York where closed to motorized traffic for that day. It was a well-organized event and the finish was on Staten Island, where all the riders gathered after.

“In total I have collected $7,600, so $3,800 per charity. As we know the charities I selected are well respected in our community; their countless hours and endless efforts doesn’t go unnoticed, as we can tell by the donations I collected.

“I would like to thank everyone that donated and those that supported me,” added Mr Roberts.
