    • Norton Cancer Institute - Brownsboro - 4955 Norton Healthcare Blvd, Louisville, KY 40241

    This is a charity ride that has a minimum fundraiser of $400. 

    Make sure you join our Louisville Bicycle Club Bike to Beat Cancer team HERE so we can show support for this great cause. 

    Route Distance: 15, 35, 65 or 100 miles

    Starting Location:  Norton Cancer Institute - Brownsboro - 4955 Norton Healthcare Blvd, Louisville, KY 40241

    Route Description: 

    Choose from 15, 35, 65 or 100 miles! We have an option to fit your activity level. To help you choose, think about it this way: A leisurely bike ride is about 10-15 miles per hour. Could you ride for one hour? Two hours? Three hours? More?

    Keep in mind that relief is only 15 miles away. Our pit stops are spaced about 15 miles apart, where you can park, stretch your legs, use the restroom and get something to eat or drink.

    Finally, remember you should enjoy yourself — but challenge yourself. You are doing this for those who cannot. You are taking on the challenge in solidarity with those who are fighting the biggest fight of their lives.

    Choose your distance

    Never cycled before? We recommend the 5-mile or 15-mile option.

    Cycled some, but it’s been a while? Try the 15- or 35-mile option. These are great distances for active beginners to novice riders.

    Frequent cycler? The 65-mile ride is for you. This longer distance can be rewarding for people who cycle regularly or enjoy fitness.

    Avid cyclist? Go for 100 miles and become a century rider! You won’t regret the feeling of accomplishment, knowing you are making a difference for children and adults fighting cancer in our community!

    Registration Fee: 5-mile rider registration is $10. 15-, 35-, 65-, and 100-mile rider registration is $50. Cancer survivors ride for free. Click here for more details on the minimum fundraising requirements.
