Bike for a better world with the 31st annual Cycle for Shelter on Sunday, July 28 beginning at Northern Essex Community College, this year featuring four routes in an effort to raise money for the Haverhill-based shelter’s aid programs.

Bikers can choose from routes—20-, 40-, 62-, or 100-miles—based on ability. Along the way, there are staffed rest stops, snacks and a cookout at the end of the route, with a celebratory party for all to enjoy once bikers cross the finish line.

Registration starts at $30 with a $250 minimum fundraising goal.
