We've had 7 'stages' of the Tour de Montana over last 5 years. It is a fun, great way to raise money. The tops was 36 riders raising $2,000 on a long one day ride (132 miles). The funest was 2 day overnight, self supported, 60 miles each way, carrying kids bikes on bike trailers to deliver to schools along the way. We pick a route, theme, make it an adventure, spread the word. We used motor vehicle support for the first two, now it's all by bike.

Has anyone ever done a bike-a-thon as a fund raiser? i would love to see
how you promoted it and any advice. I'm in the process of forming a bike collective for the north end of detroit and want to raise some more funds for bike stands and such.
