Dear Cycling Friends,

 2012 RIDE RESULTS: Another successful Breast Cancer Awareness Ride in the books. 419 riders braved the chilly morning to raise over $14,000 and bring awareness to a very good cause.  Thanks to all that came out.   This year we ceded the honor of being the largest ride in the country to Towpath Bikes in Rochester, NY.  We received a nice note from Towpath after the event letting us know the following: “You should know that all of you at Syracuse Bicycle were a driving force for our growth this year. We saw the impressive numbers that you put up last year and were working very hard this year just to keep up with you.” And, wow did they work hard! They had a total of 519 riders and raised over $52,000 for breast cancer awareness at their event.

We are honored that Towpath Bikes and many other Trek dealers have stepped up their efforts this year for this cause that has touched both of us personally. We are lucky to have the support of our customers, the local community, our vendors, and our sponsors.  We share with them our goal of coming back next year bigger and better…all with an eye toward helping find a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. 

CLUB CHALLENGE WINNER: We decided that there wasn’t a clear “club” winner this year. CNY Triathlon edged out Onondaga Cycling Club with 59 tri club members participating compared to 52 OCCers. But when you consider that CNY Triathlon numbers 1200 members, OCC with their 500 members had a much higher percentage of club members riding than CNY Tri. So we’re calling it a draw and inviting both clubs to a special “Club” night coming soon.

WINNER OF THE BIKE RAFFLE: Colleen Haggerty was the lucky winner of a Trek FX 7.1 fitness bike!

Happy Riding,

Paul and Trish
Co-Owners, Syracuse Bicycle

About the  Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Ride
Hosted by Trek Women and Syracuse Bicycle, the Breast Cancer Awareness Ride aims to raise awareness for breast cancer prevention, screening, and treatment by joining forces with women and men of all ages and abilities to ride on the same day, at the same time, across the United States and Canada.The ride offers a 25-mile route on the scenic, flat roads north of Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville and a 10-mile family friendly route on the Erie Canal path. Fees for each are $25 and all proceeds go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Each rider receives a goody bag, opportunity to win great door prizes, and entry to our post-ride party with live music and great food courtesy of Angotti’s Family Restaurant!
3-mile Walk/Run for Breast Cancer Awareness
In 2012, the Annual Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Ride now features an option to WALK/ RUN for breast cancer awareness! Our main goal this year is to raise as much money as we can for this worthy cause. We realize that many participants might have friends, family, dogs, or even cats who would love to support this event by walking and/or running INSTEAD of riding! To that end, we’ve added a new registration category: a 3-mile Nature Walk around the beauty of Green Lakes State Park. Registration for the walk/run is $25 and kids of all ages are welcome! Pets welcome too as long as they remain on a leash and promise not to eat too much of the post-event food and drink! Walkers and runners will be able to enjoy all the same great post-ride festivities as the riders. Pre-registration a must to guarantee receipt of a goody bag!
Be a Fundraiser for a Cure!
You now have the option to raise additional funds online for the 4th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Ride! At $25, this ride is cheap! Why not go the extra mile and see if you can be a top fundraiser for our cause? It’s easy to set up your own fundraising page online here. Just look for the tab at the top of the page that says “Become a Fundraiser” and then follow the simple directions to create your own page. Next, send emails to all your friends and family asking them to help us raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation!

THANK YOU FOR MAKING US THE LARGEST RIDE IN THE COUNTRY IN BOTH 2010 and 2011! In 2011 we had over 400 riders participate, making our ride the largest in the country for the second year in a row out of the over 200 scheduled rides.
