This past March at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Seminar, not only did Foundation 4 Heroes present Arnold with an award for his charity work, but I met the President and CEO, Ken Podziba, of Bike New York.
He was one of the 400 professionals that heard my presentation about what our nonprofit group has been doing and he really liked the idea and our mission.
He invited me to take part of his Bike Expo, which is expected to attract 60,000 people, but also encouraged me to ride 40 miles through the streets of New York.
Bike New York started many years ago in the 70’s but has since grown to allowing no more than 32,000 cyclists for the event that takes riders through the five boroughs of NYC. Sadly that probably means there will be no time to stop for some of NY’s delicious pizza.
Money raised is then used to go into communities and teach children and adults to “Take Life by the Handlebars.” To date they have helped some 10s of thousands experience the freedom and independence of pedaling a bike for fun and transportation.
As cool as it would be to see the entire group of superheroes riding bikes, unfortunately most of the F4H team has other responsibilities like; supporting the True Heroes team at a Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser and possibly the Avon Cancer Walk so I will be riding alone, as Hulk Hogan.
Seeing the Hulkster riding a bike thru NYC should be comical but it may also give me a chance to tell others who we are, what we are doing and help us continue to grow and gain more support.
Personally I’m not a huge fan of riding a bike to the mailbox but this is for a great cause and a huge opportunity for Foundation 4 Heroes. Sometimes you got to pull up your wrestling boots and hit the streets.
