WHY WE RIDE

Big Ten Bicycling will be pedaling for a fourth year in memory of our of beloved friend/dad/husband/son/brother/boss, Eli Abeles AND TOO MANY OTHERS impacted by cancer. Eli was a proud Wisconsin Badger, Stacy is an Indiana Hoosier alumnus and many family/friends are also Big 10 alumni, hence the incredible symbolism behind the team name. The team formed in 2018 while Eli was fighting metastatic clear cell renal carcinoma (stage 4 kidney cancer). Sadly Eli's battle ended on September 10, 2018 just 2 weeks before the 2018 ride and just a year after his diagnosis date.

We are proud to be joining Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. We know that it takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. And by participating in Pedal the Cause, we know that 100% of our donations will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center, where Eli was treated, and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
