The CycleAblility Challenge

The CycleAbility Challenge (formerly The Bresnan Bike Tour) is an ambitious bicycle tour. The Challenge is comparatively small in scope and participation (75 - 100 riders), but stellar in its stature and impact. The route is picturesque and demanding. The accommodations and support are first-class. Those who participate are a diverse group of professionals who choose to participate and share a common desire to benefit others.


The CycleAbility Challenge provides metric cycling with two ride options:
1. 25 mile loop
2. Approx 200 miles (100 both days)

Registration Types:
$2,000 - For New and Returning Cyclists: One night Stay - ALL INCLUSIVE - Approx 200 miles
$250 - For New Cyclists and Returning Cyclists - Lunch included - 25 Mile loop

Riders can pay the full amount themselves or seek contributions from supporters. All checks must be made payable to the “Special Olympics NY" (SONY).

If a rider has to cancel their participation in the ride after the May 1st commitment date, they will owe $400 due to expenses already incurred by this date. If the rider participates in the event and fails to raise the minimum (see above) required, the difference between the amount raised and the specified commitment will be reviewed.We do allow cyclists a few weeks, after the ride, time to make up the difference. If you participate in the ride and raise the minimum you are good.. We also expect riders to make an effort to have the bulk of their funds raised prior to the 6/1/18.

The tax-deductible pledges support Special Olympics New York-Hudson Valley Region.
