Tremendous Support From Local Sponsors

Letsche's Bike Shop is proud to be one of 102 Trek Bicycle Dealers across the United States and Canada that has scheduled a bike ride to help combat breast cancer. The bike ride will be held this Saturday, October 8, starting at 1 p.m. The ride will begin from Letsche's Bike Shop, with a police escort out of Cherokee for the riders.

10 and 25 mile routes are scheduled.

Riders will proceed south on Hwy 59 until C44, and will then head west on C44 for the first water stop at Redtail Ridge. The short route then heads back to Letsche's on the River Road, and the longer route continues down the River Road to Quimby. Riders will return to Letsche's from Quimby on the River Road.

The entry fee is $25, with all registration fees donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
