Ride, walk or run along the Neponset River, collecting a full poker hand at stations along the way. The best hands win great prizes. This is a fun, low-key fundraiser that can be played at your own pace. Raise money for one of your favorite organizations: Boston Natural Areas Network, Brookwood Community Farm, Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance and/or Mattapan Food & Fitness Coalition.

The main route is a 5k along off-street paved paths and registration begins at 1:30pm. A longer (17.5 miles) route through Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park and Milton is available for stronger cyclists with registration beginning at 12:30pm.

No registration fee, but we are requesting a minimum donation of $25 per participant 12 years or older with a goal of $100 raised per person.
