Riders will enjoy 5-, 10-, 25-, 50-, and 65-mile course options throughout the Chester County countryside, knowing they are making a difference in the lives of patients in their community. All funds raised will stay in Chester County to benefit The Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital, as well as Neighborhood Health.
The day kicks off at 7 AM from the Fern Hill Medical Campus in West Chester. The family ride begins with breakfast, then a 5-mile tour followed by a barbecue and kids’ games.
More experienced riders may register for 10-, 25-, 50-, and 65-mile tours. Registration is open online through today and ranges from $35 to $110. Day-of registrations are also accepted at a $5 cost increase for individual and family rates.
There will be tech support for riders along the tours, including bike safety checks, refreshments, support and gear (SAG) vehicles, cue sheets, road markings, and road marshals.
Individuals and groups may simply enjoy the ride or take part in the Fundraising Challenge by seeking sponsorships from friends, family, and coworkers.
New this year is the 1st Annual Survivorship Celebration for patients of The Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital and their families. It includes a complimentary day of family fun, including a barbecue, live music, and games.
