adult riders

Ages 18+

Grab your bike, select your route, register and commit to the fundraising minimum for that route. Then ask everyone you know to donate to cancer research. Get rolling and double your fundraising commitment to become a Pacesetter. Not only does that double your impact, but it also gets you some goodies and bragging rights. Rally friends and receive more cool stuff.
