Join us as cyclists and volunteers come together to honor cancer survivors, raise awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society Grand Rapids Hope Lodge support cancer patients by providing free lodging and transportation during their life saving treatment.

Your participation allows the American Cancer Society to help people facing cancer today and find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Through sponsorship, and the fundraising efforts of our participants, we will finish the fight against cancer.

Last year 100 participants raised just over $50,000!  Our goal this year is to exceed those totals while maintaining a first-class event with an emphasis on safety, community and fun. 

Two Scenic Ride Options: 75 Mile Ride / 35 Mile Ride.

Fundraising: We ask that each rider pledge to raise a minimum amount of $175 in order to ride. As you continue to fund raise, there are multiple incentives that you have the opportunity to earn. We have many tools to help you reach your goal. Please find the Fundraising Tips page below.
