Think of it as a history-making opportunity for you to do something big about cancer, something epic. Like cycling from Toronto to Niagara Falls in two days - June 12-13, 2010. Sure, it sounds like a lot... and it's meant to be. The conquest of cancer is a monumental task and won't be easy. But make no mistake, this event isn't just for athletes or cycling enthusiasts. The Ride to Conquer Cancer®
is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause. Even people who haven't ridden since they were twelve. All you need is motivation, a bike, and a helmet. The rest is history. Be part of it.
