In 2008, they didn’t imagine it would grow to be this. It was just a couple of guys riding bikes.. Ten years later, they’ve raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to end cancer, and they show no signs of stopping now.
Each member has a story – a story of how cancer has touched his life – people they’ve lost, family members still fighting. Each also has stories of their rides – kindnesses shown to them along the way, people they met on their journey, support they received from friends and strangers.
Whether cycling enthusiasts or avid bike riders, each is taking the necessary steps to prepare for a 200 mile bike trip this August, and they are pulling no punches. Their stretch fundraising goal is $100,000.00. Along the way, they’re raising awareness and building community too.
Two of them sat down with us to talk about their experiences, why they ride, what they hope to accomplish and how they plan to get there. It was touching and fun. You’re going to love it.
