WHY I RIDE

ANOTHER YEAR - ANOTHER RIDE
Today is September 19, 2017, and I am making my final preparations for this year's Pedal the Cause. On Sunday morning (September 24th) 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 and to raise $500. Similar to last year's ride, the weather on Sunday will be hot and humid and sunny (forecast is for 83 degrees by noon!). My plan is to start strong, stay with the pack, maintain hydration, and hopefully finish early. (I learned my lessons last year!)

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 seven years, Pedal the Cause has raised more than $15 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 $2 million dollars has been raised.

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!
