May 30th! Family Bike Ride, Victory Lap for Kids Cancer Heroes

Cancer SUCKS.  And as we all know, the best way to get through something sucky is with the help of your bike!  So come join us in celebrating local kids fighting cancer by getting on your bike.  

The Victory Lap is a family bike ride to honor every little hero at Vanderbilt University Children's Hospital. This is for riders of all ages.  Parents, bring your kids, bring your grandpa, and kids, bring a parent!  Also bring a helmet.

The ride will be the final event of this year's Rally Bike Ride to welcome home 4 riders who have been biking 46 miles a day and visiting kids in 12 different states this May to raise money and awareness for Rally Foundation for Children Cancer Research.  Pretty rad.  They also sing - check it out:
