"R2//NYC was my athletic highlight of 2018. The ride was a chance for me to ‘do good’ by raising money for Camp Ooch, while taking on a tough but fun challenge with new people with similar ambitions. Everything from the route to the planning to the accommodations was incredibly well executed. I'll be back in 2019 for sure!"
​—Adam van Koeverden

"R2//NYC is a first-class riding experience — human powered from your driveway to Manhattan! The riding is incredible; however its the special connection with Camp Ooch that sets this ride apart. Each evening is spent with Ooch staff participating in Camp ritual, bonding as a team, and learning about how our ride is supporting the real heroes — the brave kids of Camp Ooch. R2//NYC is the perfect way to cap off your cycling season."

"There simply isn’t a bike ride like R2//NYC. Five days of challenging riding on roads less travelled through gorgeous and hilly landscapes. Riding on an intimate team, sort of like the pros — all with a sense of Camp Ooch effectively woven in. I’m already excited for the 2019 edition and the future growth of R2//NYC."
