OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to enhance wellness by promoting bicycling as a means to good mental and physical health. Our goal is to encourage participants in our team to ride in events that benefit and support other non-profit organizations. Your participation in our events supports this goal as we continue to develop programs that benefit our community.
We offer weekly training rides year round, weather permitting, that promote physical fitness and preparation for the charity rides that the team participates in.
In 2008 Team Evesham was formed with only 8 riders for the MS City to Shore Ride. Our team goals were simple, we wanted to promote health and fitness and encourage a sense of community. Bring folks together. Plus we wanted to support charity events. This year we had more than 276 of our teammates ride with the team in a charity event. The MS Society recognized us for the fifth year in a row as the largest Friends and Family team but the more important news is that we have so many teammates riding with us on our weekly rides.
Numerous riders have started out as novices and now they are moving up and teaching others the joy of cycling and being part of a team. The friendships that have been made during the years have been just incredible, folks meet when riding and now they are lifelong friends. We are fortunate to find so much besides just cycling. This year we watched so many personal goals being surpassed. We even have teammates going off on vacation together and helping out with random acts of kindness.
The growth of the team has been spectacular and we want to keep our focus on safety and fitness in the coming year. In 2015 we had Team Evesham riders competing in the following rides:
- MS City to Shore
- Bike NY
- ACS Bridge to the Beach
- American Diabetes
- Irish Pub
- Bike for Bancroft
- Police Unity Tour
- Urban Promise
- Five Boro Ride
- Princeton Freewheeler
- Covered Bridge
- Ride of Silence
In the seven short years, Team Evesham has raised more than $940,000 for various charities and we have introduced cycling to more than 1,000 riders ranging from 9 year olds to 79 year olds! But it is more than about biking; it is fitness, exceeding personal goals, meeting friends, and helping others.
The State of New Jersey honored Team Evesham with a special proclamation and celebrated our remarkable record of community leadership, service, and exemplary volunteerism.
