The Change Ride is an annual fundraising bike ride to support organizing movements in Philadelphia. Change Riders raise money to support the vital work of Bread & Roses Community Fund and bike through the city to learn about the organizing efforts of local grassroots community groups.

About the Ride:

The day will begin at 8:30 a.m. a FDR park. We’ll enjoy a complimentary breakfast, do safety checks, and sign waivers. We will then hop on our bicycles to start the ride. We will travel approximately 10 miles through Philly, stopping along the the way to hear about the work of the following organizations:

Trained volunteers will lead the group, ensuring safe riding and that no participants are left behind. We’ll end our ride around 1:00p.m. and enjoy a fantastic lunch.
