Bike for Brent

2016 Bike for Brent - in the books!

The 2016 Bike for Brent took place on the weekend of July 9th and 10th. Over the course of two days, 25 riders, together with 10 support volunteers, made their way from Newton, MA to Becket with a stop-over in Northampton on Saturday night. On Sunday, the riders reached camp just before lunch and received an unforgettable welcome. As they passed the Brewster House, the riders were cheered by the entire, exuberant Chimney Corners Camp community. Continuing on to Becket, the strains of "Four Miles Up" could be heard booming through the woods. As the riders entered camp, they were met by a cheering throng of Becketites lining both sides of the road past Moose Field. After a refreshing plunge in Rudd Pond, the riders and support team were guests for lunch at Chimney Corners and Becket where they spoke about Brent Jackson's legacy in the Becket-Chimney Corners community.
