Come join Kevin's friends and family in the second annual Kevin Degen Memorial BUM Ride covering new routes along beautiful Kent Lake and Island Lake and scenic country roads in Livingston and Washtenaw counties.
Join us for a family-oriented event for little riders, intermediate touring riders, and serious century riders alike. Choose from road routes of 40 or 60 miles or enjoy a ride of 1, 8, or 24 miles in scenic Kensington Metro-Park.
Help us honor the life and courageous example of biker Kevin Degen who rode thousands of miles to raise money for his favorite charities. If he could do it, so can you!
Celebrate with us after the ride – bring a picnic lunch, connect with old friends, and enjoy the company of fellow riders who support Kevin's foundation.
Make a difference! Become a "Foundation Friend" by donating $250. Your name will appear on the 2013 BUM Ride t-shirt in thanks for your generous contribution!
All proceeds will benefit the Kevin Degen Open Road Foundation whose mission is to improve the lives of those with special needs through biking. Join us in continuing Kevin's legacy of inspiration and service to others!
