Hundreds of cyclists took part in the annual Ride Yellow charity bike ride in Bay Minette Saturday.

Organizers said courses range from a six-mile tribute ride to a 10-mile flag course for new riders.

For the truly athletic, either a 37-mile or a 62-mile course was available for experienced riders.

In an email to FOX10News, Jennifer Vellianitis, Marketing Communications for Infirmary Health, told FOX10News, the charity bike ride began seven years ago to raise cancer awareness and to gather support for the mission of inspiring others to join the fight against the disease.

“It is an honor for the City of Bay Minette to host this fun and meaningful event,” said Bay Minette Mayor Robert A. “Bob” Wills. “With the support of Infirmary Health we anticipate that it will be bigger and better than ever. We encourage everyone to come and join in the fun and excitement.”

The ride has continued to grow in popularity and last year saw more than 750 cyclists and some 200 volunteers, bringing in $60,000 to local organizations that help fight cancer.

FOX10News would like to thank Martha Davidson of Infirmary Health for sending us photos of today’s event.
