Team South Coast Bikeway raised $21,854.37 for clean water in the 2023 Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride. We were the third highest fundraising team and set a new SCB team record! Thank you to our riders who rode 35, 75 and 100 miles.
New this year, we looked for sponsors who would donate matching funds to SCBA. Thank you to Servedwell Hospitality (Cisco Kitchen + Bar, The Black Whale, The Sail Loft), Aspire Dental Care, Westport Dental PC, Seaspray Container Company, Law offices of Lang, Xifaras & Bullard, and private donors for their support. Together, we raised $6000 to help complete the South Coast Bikeway. Matching donations are still accepted. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Matching funds raised will be used for design, engineering and build grants to complete the South Coast Bikeway, a planned cycling route from Rhode Island to Cape Cod Canal. The goal for team SCBA is $30,000. This is sufficient to meet the required match for a MassTrails grant of $120,000. We have projects in Westport, Dartmouth and Wareham in mind, but more coordination with those communities is needed to determine the exact needs.
SCBA is an 501c3 organization whose mission is to assist our member communities in completing their portion of the South Coast Bikeway. Our team has raised over $25,000 for the Buzzards Bay Coalition over the last 7 years.
