Ride with CT Folk!

The 2016 Rock to Rock Bike Ride, New Haven’s largest Earth Day celebration, will be held on Saturday, April 30th. Participants will ride their bikes across the city, raising funds for environmental causes, getting exercise and having fun!

Importantly, Rock to Rock raises money each year for several environmental organizations in the New Haven area. This year CT Folk, one of those organizations, will use all funds raised in support of our riding team to help defray the costs of the 2016 Connecticut Folk Festival & Green Expo.

We invite you to join the CT Folk riding team!
