This fun adventure through Winter Park and Casselberry is the perfect occasion for you and your family to feel the wonder and excitement this time of year brings! As hundreds of bicycle riders cruise through 10 miles of brightly lit neighborhoods, it is impossible to miss the joy of the season. A truly unique experience, this NIGHT ride includes games, music, and refreshments! Come join us and see why this event has become a family favorite!
Our location will once again be South Seminole Middle School and the option to ride halfway for those who may not wish to ride the full 10 miles. Click here to view the route
Who can ride?
Anyone 10 years and older may ride solo. Children younger than 10 must be in a trailer or on a tandem. All children under 16 must wear a helmet. All participants must be able to maintain a speed of 12 mph. Flashers on your bike and helmet are recommended for this NIGHT Ride. The route can only be completed with an official group escort, so please give yourself ample time to prepare and arrive well before starting time.
‘Tis the Season for Giving
As the holiday season approaches and you search for ways to spread cheer, consider the families of New Hope for Kids. Families already taxed with astronomical medical bills or the death of a loved one find it difficult to provide gifts for their families.
Join us in helping make this holiday season a happy one for these deserving families by donating an unwrapped gift when you come to the bike ride!
Display Your Spirit!
Add to the evening’s festivities by adorning your bicycle with brightly colored lights, garlands or other holiday decorations. Be creative, but remember, think safety first!

The families in our grief and wish programs are often struggling financially due to the death of the main wage earner, or because of the mountain of medical bills associated with the illness of their child. Would you like to help these families enjoy a special meal on Thanksgiving Day? You probably know someone – – in your family, a co-worker, neighbor, friend, business associate, corporate office or maybe a group of individuals who can help sponsor the New Hope for Kids Thanksgiving ‘Give A Gift Card’ Drive.
During our 2013 Thanksgiving ‘Give a Gift Card Drive’ we will gather grocery store gift cards instead of canned goods for the families in our programs who need a little extra help. (We distributed food gift cards to over 300 families in 2012!) You may purchase a gift card of any amount from Wal-Mart, Publix or Winn Dixie and drop it off at New Hope for Kids Center for Grieving Children now through November 21st or click below to make a donation to help purchase gift cards.
