July 12-15, 2014 - The Great Bicycle Tour of the C&O Canal

2013 TGBT Riders

On July 13, 2013 San Mar staff and 116 riders (our friends) began the four day annual fundraiser bike ride. The goal was 184.5 miles down the C&O canal by July 16. Success! Thank you for this awesome gift, because of you we will be able to minister to the needs of many children.

150 Riders are registered for this event! No hills, no headwinds, & no cars. Plenty of food, lots of support, ride at your own pace, well organized.

This popular tour is an annual fundraising event, which benefits the San Mar Children's Home in Boonsboro, Maryland.

Participants pay a $35 registration fee and turn in at least $450 in pledges ($400 for those riding for only the weekend). For those exceeding minimum amounts there are prizes awarded for going above and beyond.
