Looking for an epic adventure?  Something unique?  Whether you are looking for a new challenge or are already a Strava pro, we dare you to ride 250 miles in 3 days! 

This ride is about more than pushing yourself beyond what you thought was possible because, let’s be honest, who does this?  We challenge you to ride for those battling cancer, to ride #becauseyoucan!

Why ride?  Because cancer complicates everything.  It is not selective, affecting every area of someone’s life.  With every diagnosis of cancer comes fear and confusion. Whom do I turn to for help?  Where do I go?  Even small, daily necessities like gas, groceries, and lodging become barriers to living life. 

Join the Deep South Cancer Foundation on this weekend adventure as we ride from Tupelo, Mississippi to Anniston, Alabama.  The weekend is fully supported and includes well marked routes, meals + on bike food and drink, 2 nights of hotel rooms, and general assistance. 

All riders will be transported to/from the ride if they come to Birmingham.  As part of the experience, we also have rolling road support, film crews, and sweep vans to ensure no participant is left behind.

Register as a Cycliad Weekend Participant.  Each Cycliad Weekend Participant is asked to raise a minimum of at least $1,000 for the entire weekend.  All weekend participants must fully complete the registration form and submit a nonrefundable $100 registration fee during the registration process via credit card. To participate, you must have half of your fundraising minimum met by March 31st. The remainder of your fundraising dollars are due by May 31st.

If you set a goal higher than the minimum, and do not reach it, we will not charge you for the difference.  Your registration fee counts as the first donation to your Cycliad Fundraising Campaign Goal!

One Day Ride. Join us for a day during the weekend. Riders are encouraged (not mandatory) to raise $250 for their designated hospital, which if they accomplish, includes not only a fully supported ride but a jersey as well. Riders are responsible for round-trip transportation to/from the ride.  To register, choose the day you want to ride (date specific) and click “Register Now” above!

Each registrant will receive a gift bag, t-shirt, coffee mug, water bottle, jersey, socks, and 250 mile sticker. We encourage you to register before March 17th as we cannot guarantee SWAG items to those who register after this date. 

Tour Fundraising Rewards (for individuals)

Fundraising rewards are distributed based off an individual's fundraising amounts and cannot be earned by combining dollar amounts raised by multiple teammates.
