We know it’s not easy…but it’s SO worth it.

You’ve probably heard about Pedal the Cause incentive¬†earners¬†like Yellow Jerseys¬†and King of the Mountains…but who are they exactly? Simply put, when these champions in the fight against cancer hit a certain fundraising level, they earn some incredible perks!¬†¬†

Perks aside Рand there ARE some awesome perksset your sights on reaching an incentive level this year.  Be part of an elite group of champions who have dug deep and made creating a world without cancer a top priority.

Featured Rider Tammy Linn

Tammy Linn is riding in her very FIRST Pedal the Cause this year, and is off to an incredible start! She committed to exceed Yellow Jersey at $3,000…and has already raised close to $2,000.
For Tammy, funding cancer research is personal. On November 15, 2016 she was diagnosed with a rare Stage 4 Neuroendocrine Carcinoid (NETs) that had metastasized from her pancreas to her liver. It was a day that changed the course of her life, and the lives of those she loves.

Kudos to you Tammy for having the courage to join our fight…welcome to the #pedalfamily! We’ll see you at the start!
