This is always THE event to kick off the riding season! 


Our goal is to raise enough funds to provide 100,000 meals to those less fortunate right here in our community.

Each month, 91,000 hungry Western New Yorkers turn to soup kitchens, food pantries, and other emergency food providers -- 40% are children! The Food Bank of WNY is a nonprofit clearinghouse for food solicited from the private sector. The Food Bank distributes product to approximately 500 charitable programs that feed the needy in Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara Counties. These include food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, day care centers, senior citizen programs, and residential and day programs for the handicapped, youth and those undergoing drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

For most Western New York bikers, April is the official start of the warmer Motorcycle Riding Season! Unfortunately, this year an increasing number of individuals will be standing in line at soup kitchens and food pantries instead. The Food Bank receives most of its donations during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season, so an April event like "The Food Bank Motorcycle Run" really helps at a time when donations are traditionally at a dangerous low point

Is this still the "Cyberspokes Food Bank Run?"
We've had EIGHT successful years "running the show" which raised $21,397 in cash donations and 11,558 pounds of food, but we've had some family health issues to deal with, so we've decided that we (Cyberspokes) could no longer be the main organizers of the event.
The Food Bank of WNY is a charity near and dear to our hearts so we will always and continue to be one of the main supporters and promoters of this event. We will continue to help out in any way we can. We will also be offering our advice and experience to the new organizers while continuing to promote the event via our web site and events emailer.

We've decided to "pass the torch" to the new organizers. 
As you may know, organizing an event like this takes alot of time, dedication, volunteers and hard work so anything you can do to help out would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!
