Bryan Harkins, executive vice president and head of U.S. markets at BATS, is an avid cyclist and athlete. He and his wife Melissa co-founded Wall Street Rides FAR, a charity that benefits autism research. It has garnered several sponsors from the financial industry, including BATS, ITG, TradeBot, Citadel, Goldman Sachs, and several others.
This year the ride takes place in Purchase, NY on October 10. Riders have a choice of three scenic routes through fall foliage – 14, 35 and 62 miles, and families are encouraged to participate.
