UPDATE! The Annual RCDCU Bike-A-Thon is on Saturday, September 19 & Sunday September 20th, 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic has put a stop to the way we hold events and live our lives, but it has not stopped the need to continue to fight prostate cancer. Safety is the most important thing for our participants and volunteers so following the guidelines for social distancing the bike-a-thon will be a virtual ride for this year.
“Riding separately but together”
Options for the ride:
- Choose 1 of our 10, 30, or 50 mile amazing bike routes (routes are posted on our Facebook page).
