In the Fall of 2018, the Friends organized our first Watershed Ride team, the BRT Blazers, in support of the Buzzards Bay Coalition. Hundreds of cyclists ride each year to raise money for the Buzzards Bay Coalition's work to restore and protect clean water. Riders of all levels participate in the 100-, 75-, or 35-mile routes and collectively raise thousands of donations for this great cause.
The ride offered a unique opportunity for the Friends - not only were we able to advocate for a healthier and more environmentally friendly future for our region, but we were also able to rally our supporters and spread the word about the BRT to a wider audience.
Our 2018 BRT Blazers Team, with over 30 riders, raised over $21,000! And we can’t wait to ride again in the upcoming 2019 ride.
