Help kick off the 2018 Great Cycle Challenge USA with a group ride across the Golden Gate Bridge on Saturday, June 2. Benefitting the Children's Cancer Research Fund, the day will include a short program featuring a local family that will talk about its cancer journey and a symbolic bell ringing for those who have completed cancer treatment. The ride will incorporate two crossings of the Golden Gate Bridge as cyclists ride across the 1.7-mile bridge from San Francisco to Sausalito and back again, a biking journey totaling 11 miles.
As part of the Great Cycle Challenge USA, riders set personal mileage goals and connect with their friends, families and peers for fundraising, which is done through the Great Cycle Challenge USA website. Participants can accumulate mileage on any type of bike, indoors or out, as they improve their health while having fun as they ride solo or with friends to work, on weekends, near home or out on the open road. Registrations for this year’s challenge are still being accepted. Visit greatcyclechallenge.com to register, to make a donation or to learn more.
