You know how they say the power is in your hands? Well, you have the power to change lives… in your legs. The Empire State Ride is a fully supported, seven day cycling adventure across New York State to support cutting-edge cancer research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Cancer has impacted the lives of so many people we know, and we believe that finding a cure is possible in our lifetimes. We’re coming together to ride as a community to change the future of cancer research; to make what’s possible into reality. To create a world without cancer.
This one-of-a-kind experience starts in Manhattan, brings riders through some of the most scenic parts of New York State and ends at one of the natural wonders of the world: Niagara Falls. You’ll ride an average of 40 – 75 miles per day. The ride welcomes participants of all backgrounds and fitness levels. Is it challenging? Yes, but you can do it, and Empire State Ride staff and volunteers are there to keep you safe and happy along the way so you can focus on enjoying this experience with your fellow riders. Just get yourself and your bike to New York City, and we’ll take care of the rest.
Even if you can’t join us for the full week, you can still be a part of the event! Register for one of three one-day rides along the route.
By participating in the Empire State Ride, you’ll join a community of people brought together by their bikes and their hearts. Your ride will change lives – including your own.
Why choose to take part in the Empire State Ride? Because it’s as far from low impact as you can get.
