Obliteride hosts bike ride to fund cancer research
March 12, 2013
In August, it will be time to take off the training wheels and obliterate cancer.
That is the mission of the first ever Obliteride, a weekendlong celebration that culminates with a bike ride of varying routes that will pass through Issaquah in their quest to fund cancer research.
“Obliteride is a communitywide event that everyone can participate in by riding, volunteering or cheering on participants as they roll through your community,” Obliteride Executive Director Amy Lavin said in a statement.
Because of sponsors, 100 percent of the funds that Obliteride collects will directly benefit research.
Obliteride features 25-, 50-, 100- and 180-mile races Aug. 9-11, which will make its way through Issaquah as the riders head down to Tacoma, giving locals a chance to yell their support.
