About the Ride

On October 2nd, the 60-mile Ride for Refugees & Immigrants will raise critical funds for the International Institute of New England (IINE).

IINE provides refugee resettlement, intensive case management, education, career advancement, youth programming, legal and citizenship services, and more—to 2,500 refugees and immigrants throughout New England each year.

The Ride began two years ago with a small group of friends committed to having fun and raising money for IINE. This year, 20 riders will cover the route between IINE’s Boston office to its new Lowell office and back, along the Minuteman Bike Path and the streets of Lowell and Boston.
