About

A Beautiful Ride, Bicycle and Flower Festival, started as a small local street fair in 1993 by the non-profit HavenHome. HavenHome has been brining cominuties together since 1985, in order to provide a haven to the homeless. Part of this mission takes place right in your community, as the more people who come together, the more homeless families can have a safe roof over their heads.

A Beautiful Ride, has evolved into a large street festival that hosts craft, game and flowers vendors from all over, carnival rides, and of course the Beautiful Ride Charity Cycling Challenge, a 50, and 100 mile bike ride through almost 15 acres of beautiful back-roads and through the main street festival, in order to raise money for homeless families.
