NSO Handlebars for the Homeless 2021 is a month-long virtual bike ride event beginning in August to help feed the homeless. We are looking to raise funds to cover one year of food support.
More than 10,000 Detroit residents experienced homelessness in 2019, living on the streets and in shelters for lack of safe, affordable, and permanent housing. Those suffering from homelessness are often victims of other issues including chronic health conditions, mental illness, drug addiction, and abuse. Individuals experiencing homelessness are food insecure and often face challenges in maintaining a nutritional diet relying on meals provided in shelters, such as NSO’s Detroit Healthy Housing Center.
For the first time, cyclists participating in Handlebars for the Homeless can ride 16-miles to raise money virtually for this cause anytime and anywhere. Cyclists can take their own route, ride indoors or outdoors, atop a traditional bike or a smart bike trainer, on their favorite bike path or virtual bicycle app.
The registration fee is $35/person. All registered cyclists will receive an NSO Handlebars for the Homeless high-performance T-shirt and raffle entry. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.
