Annual Al Bolea Memorial Ride

This ride is in memory of the late Al Bolea who lost his gallant fight against Myelofibrosis on September 23, 2005. Al was the co-founder of the Charles River Wheelmen (CRW) and had a profound effect on the people around him. He showed them the importance of valuing and welcoming each person; that riding is about companionship and enjoying the road together.

Each year, a group of his family and friends organize this ride to remember Al, create awareness of Myelofibrosis, encourage donations for MF research, and to have fun! This always popular ride offers routes which travel scenic back roads of Concord, Acton, Carlisle, and Bedford, and even include a surprise lemonade stand. Click here to make a gift in honor of someone with myelofibrosis now.
