Ride solo, or in teams. Ride for someone you know, someone you’ve lost, or just ride for the fun of it
Whatever the reason, join us in the fight to beat cancer
Riders will have the chance to gather donations for the cause over the course of several months leading up to the day of the ride. Bikes are assigned to either solo riders or teams of 2 or more. Ride for 20 minutes, or four hours – it’s up to you how long you ride, and how many people hop on the bike.
Spectators and cheer squads are welcome to enjoy the show from the sidelines to cheer on their teams. Sessions happen every hour, on the hour, and run for 50 minutes, with ten-minute breaks for refreshments and to hear our physician advocates and KUCC patients share their stories.
