Cyclists will pedal through Dedham in the second annual Ride for Food in September to raise money for food pantries in Greater Boston.

The event last year raised $33,000 for the Dedham Food Pantry, organizers said.

This year, it will collect money for that pantry and seven others: A Place to Turn in Natick; Food For Free in Cambridge; The First Church Food Pantry in Jamaica Plain; Needham Food Pantry; Open Table of Concord and Maynard; Wellesley Food Pantry and Westwood Food Pantry.

The ride, scheduled for Sept. 15, features three courses of varying lengths: 12 miles, 25 miles, or 50 miles, organizers said. Riders will be treated to a barbecue feast afterward.

The nonprofit Ripples of Hope and the volunteer group Three Squares New England sponsor the fundraiser.
