2 DAYS. 150+ MILES. 1 EPIC RIDE.
Riding 150+ miles through New York in two days. Sure, it sounds like a lot — and it’s meant to be. But make no mistake, this event on June 6-7, 2015 isn’t just for athletes or cycling enthusiasts.
is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause. All you need is motivation, a bike and a helmet. Your participation in The Cancer Research Institute Ride to Conquer Cancer® sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb will support groundbreaking laboratory and clinical research, bringing innovative immune-based cancer treatments (immunotherapy) to patients and offering them new hope.
Your 2-day cycling adventure begins as you gather with fellow Riders for an inspiring Opening Ceremony, where we’ll remember those lost to cancer and honor those continuing the fight. After an energizing sendoff, you’ll Ride out with a renewed sense of purpose, as you follow the route through some of New York's most dynamic scenery.
We’ll explore and escape to the countryside. We’ll cross into Connecticut where you’ll be surrounded by scenes lifted straight from a holiday postcard. You’ll pass storied stone walls and green pastures, colonial houses and quaint gift shops. You’ll be rejuvenated in a way that can only be achieved by a long ride along the coast and open air of picturesque New England. Lining the route every 10-20 miles, you’ll find Pit Stops fully stocked with all the snacks and hydration you’ll need to keep going. Day One culminates with arrival at Camp, where you can enjoy a cold beer, a hot shower, and a well-deserved massage before a fun evening of entertainment and socializing.
After camping overnight, Day Two will lead you further through the inspiring landscape, as you make your way toward the Finish Line — a high-energy celebration of your epic Ride and the amazing impact you’ve made in the quest to conquer cancer.
