Join Save the Sound’s Rock to Rock Team!

What is Rock to Rock?

Rock to Rock is a cycling event that raises money for environmental organizations throughout Greater New Haven. Over the last 16 years, Rock to Rock has raised more than $2.5 million to support local environmental work. This event wouldn’t be possible without YOU! Each rider is asked to fundraise at least $100 for the organization of their choice (we hope you’ll choose us 🥰).

Maps & Routes

Join us for a beautiful spring ride or walk! In 2024 you can ride a new 5-mile Family Ride, a 12-mile (pictured above), 20-mile, 40-mile, or 60-mile ride in a loop starting and ending in East Rock Park. For the youngest riders, there will be a Bike Rodeo and a 1-mile loop around the park. Learn more here.

But I’m not a cyclist.

Good news! Non-cyclists can participate in Rock to Rock by hiking around the base of East Rock. Common Ground is offering a West Rock hike as well. Bring binoculars and water! The walks are open to all ages.
