This weekend thousands will set out on their bikes in support of the Ride to Conquer Cancer. For months participants have been training to ride from Vancouver to Seattle while raising funds for the BC Cancer Foundation.

The Ride kicks off with an official opening ceremony this Saturday at 7:00am in the Guildford Town Centre parking lot (adjacent to Empire Theatres). There are also designated cheering sections so that the public can encourage participants while they face this two-day, 200+km challenge. The first cheering station will be over at Enver Creek Secondary, from 7:00am until 9:00am and from there other cheering stations include Marine Drive in Bellingham, Cady Park in Snohomish, and DeYoung Park in Woodinville, Washington on June 21st.
