Trans-NH Bike Ride’s 35th Anniversary Event Makes an Impact
By Jasmine Milbier | Tuesday, July 26, 2022
For 35 years, the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire (PFFNH) and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) have hosted the TNHBR in partnership with the MDA. IAFF members from across New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida, Idaho, Wisconsin, and Oregon, rode in support of MDA, undeterred from extreme heat. The 36th anniversary ride is expected to take place June 23-24, 2023, with registration to open in late 2022.

“On behalf of the entire board of directors of the Trans NH Bike Ride, I would like to thank everyone that participated in this 35th Annual charity bicycle ride for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The success of this ride each year is dictated by its many facets that make up the ride. From the many generous donations of food and goods to the countless hours behind the scenes from each volunteer, board member, and registered rider.” said Michael Roberts, TNHBR President and retired Lt. with the Londonderry Professional Firefighters, L3160. “This year we raised just almost $100,000.00 with only 45 riders, the difference maker this year was that many of our volunteers that have been with us for many years collected donations as well. This was a huge boost to the overall total contribution this year. As we look forward to next year, we look back on the 35 years of success and realize that looking forward to next year we will be unveiling a new venue. A two-day platform that will allow for dirt route riders to ride off road while still keeping some of our traditions for those that want to continue to ride the street. We hope to release this new information sometime mid to late fall.”
“I am blown away year-after-year by the commitment and dedication the Trans-NH Bike Ride Committee has to this event. 35 years of continued support is such an accomplishment, and the MDA is so honored to partner with them. Moving MDA’s mission forward is only possible because of committed partners like them and the $98,000 raised to accelerate research and accessibility for our MDA Community.” said Jasmine Milbier, MDA National Director, Fire Fighter Partners.
