MANCHESTER – On May 5, the American Lung Association of the Northeast celebrates the fourth annual Cycle the Seacoast along the Portsmouth coast. Cyclists can choose from three different route options: 25, 50 or 100 miles. To prepare for the ride, Redhook Brewery of Portsmouth is hosting “Beer & Bikes,” a fun event for registered trekkers, prospective trekkers, volunteers and the whole family.

Join the American Lung Association of the Northeast on Thursday, Feb. 21, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Redhook Brewery, 1 Redhook Way, Portsmouth, for food, beer, trivia, prizes and fun.

Meet new people while American Lung Association staff members answer questions about the Cycle the Seacoast event scheduled for May 5.

Cycle the Seacoast is a one-day ride. Proceeds from the bike trek benefit lung disease research, advocacy, and programs as well as the Fight for Air. The evening provides a perfect opportunity for those who have not yet registered for Cycle the Seacoast.

Those interested in volunteering for the day are invited to come down and learn more about the many opportunities that are available. Volunteering is a great way to experience the event and help support the Lung Association’s mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. Assignments can be for a few hours or for the day.
