On Sunday, September 10th a group of intrepid riders set out to complete a pilot run for The Fireflies Tour, New York edition.
The trip started at Niagara Falls, where the team began their 550-mile journey, to be completed over 6 days. Today, the riders will glide into New York City, welcomed home by their friends at colleagues on The Mill’s rooftop.
Over the past 16 years, Fireflies has helped to raise over £1.7m for Leukemia charities, with rides in Europe and both coasts of the US. The inaugural New York team’s incredible effort builds on the legacy of this iconic cycling initiative, with the aim of raising $12,600 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
So, who’s riding? Let’s meet the courageous cyclists who have been riding tirelessly down North America’s East Coast.
