4TH Annual Breast Cancer Ride



On October 12th 2014, Towpath Bike in conjunction with VanBortel Ford & Subaru, we will host the 4th Annual Breast Cancer Ride. Featuring 10- and 25-mile, 50-mile family-friendly group rides.

New this year, thanks to Medved Running and Walking have added a 5k Run. This allows us to expand beyond the cycling community to runners and walkers in an effort to raise additional awareness and funds for this great cause. And yes, there are going to be some really cool prizes 

All fundraising proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester. With one in every eight women in the US getting breast cancer in her lifetime, most people have a close friend or family member affected by the disease. It's important to us that the money stay in the Rochester Community so that our loved ones are the immediate benefactors of this event.  

The goal of the  Breast Cancer Ride is not only to raise funds for breast cancer research, but unite local communities in the effort to raise awareness of the importance of breast health in a fun, supportive environment. Check out photos from last year on our facebook page. Mark your calendars for this great event!


The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester’s mission is to provide support to those touched by a diagnosis of breast cancer, to make access to information and care a priority through education and advocacy, and to empower women and men to participate fully in decisions relating to breast cancer.
