This year, Velocity offers three fully-supported routes of different distances so that you can have a meaningful experience that matches your cycling ability.
Whichever route you choose, you’ll kick off your Ride on October 8 with the entire community as we gather for an inspiring Opening Ceremony featuring stories from your fellow Riders. Then, you’ll embark on your chosen route, which will take you on a scenic ride through the beautiful Hudson Valley. Finally, all Riders will reunite at our Velocity Day Festival, featuring a beer garden for those 21 and older, food, drink, music, family activities and more!
As a Velocity Rider, you have our support every step of the way. We’re here to help you achieve your cycling and fundraising goals. Thank you for getting us one step closer to a world without cancer.
The Further You Go, The Closer We Get.
Three professionally designed and supported routes leave from our Start/Finish in Purchase, New York and wind their way through the beautiful fall foliage and rolling hills of the Hudson Valley. Choose from 15K (9 miles), 50K (31 miles) or 100K (62 miles) and know that our staff and crew have your back at every turn. Specific route details are still being confirmed, but initial highlights include picturesque towns like Yorktown Heights, Peekskill and Pleasantville, miles of Westchester County bike trails and the New Croton Reservoir. No matter where you ride, you can rest assured that our fleet of support vehicles will be there to give you a lift should you need it.
All Riders will have a $75 registration fee and $500 fundraising minimum. Riders have until October 23 to reach their minimums.
100% of the funds raised for Velocity go directly toward expert patient care and cancer research at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Bike Rental Information
We know that not everybody has their own bicycle fit to ride Velocity. To make sure everyone that would like to participate in Velocity can ride with us, we've teamed up with Unlimited Biking as our official bike rental partner for 2023. All bike rentals from Unlimited Biking include a free helmet, bike pick-up and drop-off convenience at the Start/Finish Line, and bike maintenance to ensure a smooth ride. Please note that bike rentals are handled individually by each rider, and the rental program is not managed or guaranteed by Velocity.
