WHY I RIDE

ANOTHER YEAR - ANOTHER RIDE
Today is September 28, 2018, and I am making my final preparations for this year's Pedal the Cause. On Sunday morning (September 30th) I will be among the thousands of cyclists 'Pedaling the Cause' on one of six courses winding though Chesterfield MO. The courses vary in length from 10 to 100 miles. My goal is to ride 19 miles. Similar to last year's ride, the weather on Sunday will be hot and sunny (forecast is for 81 degrees by noon!). My plan is to start strong, stay with the pack, maintain hydration, and hopefully finish early. (I learned my lessons two years ago!)

WHAT IS PTC?
Pedal the Cause is a community-wide fundraising bike challenge for riders of all ages and abilities. 100% of the proceeds stay in St. Louis to fund cancer research. Over the past eight years, Pedal the Cause has raised more than $19 million, every penny of which stayed in St. Louis and was donated to Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. Already this year, an additional $3 million dollars has been pledged.

WHY I RIDE?
I ride to support Cancer Research in St. Louis. We are all impacted by this devastating disease. I can't cure Cancer, but I can ride a bike. Pedal the Cause is my chance to be a small part of something very big.

Enough Words - Let's Ride!
