SYRACUSE, NY – October 11, 2013. Syracuse Bicycle is hosting their 5th Annual Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Ride, 5K Fun Run and Duathlon on Saturday, October 12th, at Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville, NY. The Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Ride aims to raise awareness for breast cancer prevention, screening, and treatment by joining forces with women and men of all ages and abilities to ride on the same day, at the same time, across the United States and Canada. With over 400 riders last year, Syracuse Bicycle hosted one of the largest event in the United States and Canada in terms of rider participation among over 200 participating Trek Bicycle retailers. They expect to exceed that number of riders this year.
Participants can choose between three great ride options: a 10-mile family-friendly ride on the Erie Canal Path, a 25-mile or a 50-mile road ride on a scenic, flat loop north of Green Lakes State Park. New this year is a non-competitive, fun Duathlon (25-mile bike and 5k run) that will not be timed, and a 5k Fun Run or Nature Walk. One hundred percent of the $30 registration fee is donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Proceeds from a bike raffle at the event will benefit the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Central New York.
All riders will receive a gift bag, a chance to win fabulous door prizes, and fully catered post-ride lunch by Angotti's Family Restaurant. On-course support provided by The Rabin Law Firm. Gifts for participating breast cancer survivors provided by Mirbeau Inn & Spa.
