I ride Tour De Rhody to help cancer research. Riding bikes is one of my favorite things, although I prefer mountain biking! I do ask my dad why he can't make this a mountain biking ride. Even so, I am willing to ride on the road, or maybe gravel this year after practicing with NEHSCA. I can get Mark Savage to drive me if I get tired I'm sure. Please help support this great cause and donate to support my ride!
Tour De Rhody
Tour De Rhody is a road and gravel cycling tour to support the Brown University Oncology Research Group (BrUOG). BrUOG was created in 1994 to coordinate clinical cancer research for Brown’s affiliated hospitals and Alpert Medical School faculty. BrUOG’s main mission is to improve cancer care through the implementation of innovative, multidisciplinary cancer clinical trials. BrUOG provides the infrastructure for the efficient development and implementation of these trials, which are created by Brown University faculty. Tour De Rhody features a 15 mile supported road course accesible as a fun challenge to recreational riders and 50 mile (or so) road or gravel loops offering a challenge through some of Rhode Island's most beautiful countryside. In our first year we raised over $18,000 to support cancer research in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts. With your support we can continue to grow!
Tour De Rhody began in 2019 as a road and gravel ride to support the Brown University Oncology Research Group (BrUOG) which coordinates clinical cancer research for Brown’s affiliated hospitals and Alpert Medical School faculty. With a short ride of around 15 miles, to longer 40-50 mile road or gravel loops, there are options for most to support this cause on supported routes through some of the most beautiful country in Rhode Island. 2020 will be bigger, even more fun, have porta-potties, and hopefully raise even more to support the great work of BrUOG.
