Main Line Animal Rescue and the Pennsylvania SPCA are teaming up for a virtual cycling event this month to help raise funds and awareness for MLAR’s animal rescue and adoption mission. Aptly named Handlebarks, the virtual event will take place June 6-20.

Encouraging riders of all skill levels to hit the trail—or their stationery bike—Handlebarks offers 5-100 mile bike rides that can be completed at once or across two weeks. Entry fees for the event are $15 each. There are also several raffles, with prizes like a bike rack and a bike.

“While we may not gather together to kick off a large-scale ride at Main Line Animal Rescue’s beautiful property in Chester Springs, we can still go for bike rides, taking advantage of the beautiful weather,” says PSPCA’s CEO Julie Kilm. “There are so many ways to continue to help animals, because they will not stop needing us to stand up for them.”

Our Best of the Main Line Elimination Ballot is open through February 22!
