The two-day Pedal The Cause event begins at 2 p.m. at Soldier's Memorial on October 6, 2012, with the PTC Kids Challenge followed by live entertainment, dinner and celebrity and team recognition. The October 7 bike event begins at 7 a.m. and features a 15-, 25-, 50- and 75-mile ride beginning and ending near Soldier's Memorial near the Gateway Arch. Pedal The Cause will also feature a spinning tent with approximately 60 bikes to support riders who prefer stationary cycling. Riders are asked to fundraise $500 for the 15- or 25-mile ride and $1,000 for the 50- or 75-mile ride.
100% of donations stay right here in St. Louis for cancer research at the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
