Come and join the Bravehearts for a bike ride and family day in scenic Harvard, MA while supporting a great cause. This event provides enjoyment for riders of all ages and abilities with your choice of a 50-mile, 25-mile, and children’s route. The proceeds from the event go to Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in Casco, Maine. 

This event offers an opportunity for members of the community to join together and celebrate the power of friends, family, and community; stewardship for the environment; a love of outdoor adventure; a reverence for nature; and a desire to help people and their families facing health care crises. In 2019, more than 350 people attended the event including riders of all ages, their families, and a host of cheering friends. This year, we hope you will join us as well.

About the Bravehearts:

The Bravehearts are a community-based, all-volunteer organization established in honor of Dylan Connelly after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor shortly after his 30th birthday. Prior to his diagnosis, Dylan founded a commercial solar energy business helping lead central Massachusetts toward a sustainable energy future. An avid cyclist and outdoor enthusiast, Dylan was known for his extreme physical and mental toughness, making him truly worthy of the name “Braveheart.” He passed away in 2013, but his spirit continues to shine within the community and the loving family and friends that he left behind. Visit braveheartsfodc.com for more information. 

We hope you will be able to join us, either in person or in spirit through a donation to the event or in support of a rider or team. Thank you for helping us all make a difference together!
