8-mile bike ride to Fort Tilden beach is to celebrate the end of summer

We encourage people to participate in raising funds for the Warchest,
which can be done in the following ways:

Join us at 5 p.m. at Grand Army Plaza. We are asking a $5-$15 sliding
scale donation for the event. Refreshments and beverages will be
the beach after-party, and we will be riding by the Books Through Bars
bake sale at the Park Slope Food Co-op to pick up some treats for the
ride. As a participant in the ride, you will also receive a fancy spoke
Join us for the After-party:
To get to Fort Tilden beach via public transit, take the 2 (also 5 at
hours) to Flatbush Avenue. Transfer to the Q35 bus from Flatbush
the corner of Nostrand, Kings Highway, Fillmore Avenue or Avenue U
Plaza). After the bridge, ask the driver to let you off at Fort Tilden.
Alternate: Take the A to Rockaway Park then Q35 or Q22 bus to the park.
Walk south along the beach until you see us! WeÂ´ll be there from about 6
p.m. until after the sun sets.

This can be done through a flat donation to the runner of your
ask from those who wish not to run to actively support those who are
running in hopes of collecting as much for our comrades as possible. For
