Ride for Hope Gran Fondo Eleuthera

March 10 2018
Bahamas, Caribbean, near USA

The Ride for Hope is a fundraising event that raises hope and resources to aid cancer research and survivorship across the country of the Bahamas. Our 2018 event, will take place Saturday, March 10, in Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera.

The "Gran Fondo Eleuthera" is a fully supported ride for people of all ages and abilities. Cyclists choose their own participation level (starting with a fundraising minimum of $500; $250 for students) along with their own personal goal of how many miles they intend to ride (up to 100 miles).

The out and back route leads cyclists past turquoise, crystal clear waters, quaint settlements, a journey that combines scenic riding, historical sites with little to no traffic.  Frequent rest stops and mechanical assistance available throughout the route.  The festival celebration takes place at the staging area throughout the day - enjoy Bahamian food, merriment, and great music with other participants, supporters, volunteers, and guests.
