On Saturday, September 14, join cycling enthusiasts from around the State at the 14th annual Pedaling for Payson fundraising event. Monies raised supports the Pedaling for Hope Fund at Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care. The Fund largely underwrites the Center's Nurse Navigator Program, which serves to coordinate both the medical treatment and community outreach for the most vulnerable cancer patients.

The event is being held at Elm Brook Park in Hopkinton and includes a variety of rides to choose from ranging from 16 to 77 mile rides, and an adventurous mountain bike ride that includes a rest stop at Henniker Brewing Company. All routes will take cyclists through picturesque parts of New Hampshire and include rest stops featuring food and beverages. Upon completion of the ride, participants are invited to enjoy a barbeque lunch, refreshments and live entertainment at Elm Brook Park.

An FX3 road bike donated by S&W Sports valued at over $700 will be raffled off.

Raffle tickets are $5 each or three for $10. Only 750 tickets will be sold, and the drawing will be held on September 14. All proceeds from the bike raffle will benefit Pedaling for Payson. Ticket holders do not need to be present to win. You can purchase tickets online at or by calling Concord Hospital Trust at (603) 227-7162.

Two pre-ride events are being held throughout the summer. The first is ‘Bike Night on the Big Screen’, July 11 at Red River Theatres in Concord. Tickets are $12 before June 30th and $15 at the door; and, include the feature film Inspired to Ride, beer tasting courtesy of New Hampshire Distributors, Inc. and Litherman’s Limited Brewery, tasty treats provided by The Granite Restaurant.
