My personal favorites include our annual Jingle Ride which raises money for the Horizons for Homeless Children and the Pan-Mass challenge which donates every raised dollar to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

6. Ride in a Gran Fondo.

Considered cycling’s version of the marathon, ‘big rides’ come with all sorts of distance options for every level of cyclist.  Great motivation for increasing your miles.  Find a gran fondo near you.
