Syracuse Bicycle is hosting their 9th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Ride on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville, NY.  Participants can choose between four great ride options: a 10-mile family-friendly ride on the Erie Canal Path, a 25-mile or a 50-mile road ride on a scenic, flat loop north of Green Lakes State Park, and new this year – an 8-mile mountain bike trail ride in the park. Net proceeds from the event will benefit the tremendous efforts of the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Central New York.  This means that money donated will stay local, helping more women and their families right here in CNY! All riders will receive a chance to win fabulous door prizes and fully catered post-ride lunch by Angotti’s Family Restaurant and Gifford’s Ice Cream. On-course support provided by The Rabin Law Firm. Participating breast cancer survivors will receive a special gift at our recognition ceremony.

Why we ride…  We ride for our Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Aunts, and our best friends. We ride for people we know and for people we don’t. We ride to raise money for research and to find a cure.  OUR GOAL: $25,000!
