One of HV’s biggest charity bike races is back for 2022

The Covid pandemic changed the Hudson Valley for two years, and those effects are still being felt. Businesses closed or reduced. Families have been impacted in so many ways that it would have been unimaginable for most of us before the pandemic. And charities that were used to community events to raise funds have been hit particularly hard.

This is the Sun Bike Run

For years I remember attending the Here Comes the Sun bike race for suicide prevention. It was held every year at the beginning of May. It started with a breakfast and information booths at PC’s Paddock in Poughkeepsie and ended with a big party, lots of food and live music. It was always 50s/50s, lots of awards, music, and a scenic ride through one of the most beautiful parts of the country, right here in the Hudson Valley.

Over the years the race got so big it was hard to find a place to park your bike, and nearby businesses opened up their lots to the many cars that wanted to park and see the bikers and be part of the race . It was huge. How did he get so big? Because the Hudson Valley Bikers are some of the most charitable people I’ve met in my life, and because the cause is one of the most important.

Well, I’m thrilled to tell you that the Here Comes the Sun Bike Race for Suicide Prevention is back for 2022, so save the date. It’s May 1 and once again it will start at PC’s Paddock at 273 Titusville Road in Poughkeepsie. It’s going to be a good time, as always. And for an important cause, as always. Stay tuned for more details, but save the date now.
