Pedals & Petals of Inlet will join Trek dealers across the United States and Canada to raise awareness for breast cancer research, treatment, and prevention by hosting a casual, family-friendly bike ride on Saturday, October 12th.
The 8th Annual Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Ride, which is open to men and women of all ages and abilities, will start at Pedals & Petals on Main Street at 10 a.m. and go down South Shore Road towards Old Forge.
Participants can choose between an 11.6-mile or a 20.8-mile ride.
Ride support, ride leaders, and a ride reception will be provided by Pedals and Petals.
Registration is currently open and interested bikers can sign up at Pedals & Petals, or on-line at pedalsandpetals.com.
The fee is $30. On-line registration closes on Friday, October 11 at noon.
Registration forms will also be available from 8 to 9:45 a.m. on the day of the event.
One hundred percent of the registration fees will go directly to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The first 50 registrants will receive a gift bag, and all participants will have an opportunity to register on-site for door prizes and a national sweepstakes for a Trek Lexa road bike.
