Toolshed has had the good fortune to have worked with hundreds of incredible musicians throughout our fourteen years in the social media marketing and digital PR business. We try to pay it forward by helping to raise money and awareness for ROAD RECOVERY, a non-profit organization, by doing a hundred-mile Century bike ride each Fall to raise money for the charity’s at-risk kids in need.
Toolshed founder Dick Huey rides with Road Recovery founder Gene Bowen and several other committed individuals. We raise money for ongoing charity services for kids, for this organization which is run on a shoestring and with a lot of grit out of NYC.
This year’s fundraising ride, round-trip from Warwick (Toolshed HQ) to NYC and back, will happen on Sunday, October 5, 2014.

The Toolshed/Road Recovery Century Ride a roundtrip Warwick-NYC ride that is about 110 miles – 56 or so miles each way. We’re planning to ride from Warwick, through New York and New Jersey to the George Washington Bridge, where we’ll cross, turn around, and head back up along the Hudson River and through Harriman State Park. It’s not for the faint of heart – nearly 6000 feet of climb along the ride.
This won’t be a race – we’ll all be riding more or less together.
Here’s the likely route and direct link for the ride. Please follow us on Strava if you’re interested.
Thanks for your help and support.
All the best,
