The largest charity bike ride is set for this weekend, as the RIDEYELLOW organization celebrates 8-years of raising money for those battling cancer.
Courses include a six-mile tribute ride with a slow pace, a 10-mile flat course that is suited for new riders, a 37-mile moderately hilly course for intermediate riders, and a 62-mile ride for experienced riders.
The charity bike ride was founded in 2007 by Mary Trufant and Ann White-Spunner to raise awareness for cancer and to draft grassroots support for their mission of inspiring and empowering people affected by cancer.
This year’s event is sponsored by Infirmary Health and will be held Saturday, June 14th at Halliday Park in Bay Minette.
Last year, more than 750 cyclists participated with 60-thousand dollars being raised for local cancer charities. This year’s goal is to raise 80-thousand dollars and raise the participant number to 800.
Online registration is open until midnight, Thursday, June 12th.
Mail-in registration forms must be received by June 8th.
Those wanting to participate can also register the day of the ride at Halliday Park.
