Annual New Year’s Day bike ride

NEW MANCHESTER — Team Mojo Foundation will be hosting the annual “Hancock Hangover Ride” at noon today, Jan. 1, at Tomlinson Run State Park., in the parking lot near the pool area. This year, trail runners are also welcome. We will ride and run on the mountain bike trails at the park.

This has been a tradition for over 10 years, and the last several years we’ve accepted donations from cyclists (and now runners) that Team Mojo would use in the Spring to buy new bikes for underprivileged kids who otherwise would not be able to afford one.

This year we are earmarking the donations for Communicycle, another nonprofit organization that refurbishes donated bicycles and has kids help work on them, eventually earning the bike to keep. The donations will help buy parts and accessories to help in the refurbishing process. Communicycle started in Aliquippa, has a location in Midland, and is trying to establish a presence in the East Liverpool area, with the held of the Team Mojo Foundation.
