National Ride for Reading Week 2019

National Ride For Reading Week is an annual nationwide effort in which volunteer cyclists bring our mission to their town by hosting book deliveries to Title 1 Schools in their communities. It’s the biggest week of the year! May is National Bike Month, and we hope to encourage cyclists to use a Ride For Reading delivery as part of their local celebrations. The 2019 dates for National Ride for Reading Week are May 5-11, 2019.
