Ride United: Cycle For A Cause

Ride United

Whether you’re a hardcore cycling enthusiast or someone who just enjoys a leisurely pedal around the neighborhood, make plans to participate in the this year’s Ride United fundraiser, happening Sunday, June 2nd.

Presented by United Way of Decatur & Mid-Illinois and Spin City Cycles, this annual community event provides riders of every skill level with an opportunity to have some fun, get a little exercise, and help raise money for a great cause.

Ride United kicks off at 6:30 am from Fairview Park. Cyclists will be able to choose from several well-marked, low traffic courses of varying difficulties that range between 10 and 60 miles. Riders can also bike the 52 mile Gravel Route, which features 22 total miles of gravel terrain. Each route will feature a map, well-stocked rest areas, and round-the-clock support and gear drivers to help anyone with fatigue or mechanical difficulties (please note, SAG support will end at 1:00 pm). Lunch by Beach House will be served at the finish line from 10:30 to 1:00 pm, where there will also be cold drinks, a raffle drawing, and prize giveaways.

If you would like to participate in the event, you can register online. The entry fee is $35 per rider and includes your admission to the event, lunch, and a Ride United 2019 t-shirt.

Helping Transform The Community

All proceeds from Ride United will go towards the United Way’s impact programs, which seek to better the community through youth education, adult education & training, health, safety, and essential services & program linkages.

Utilizing these five focus areas, United Way works to transform the community so that all citizens have the opportunity to live a dignified, self-sufficient life without the need for subsidized assistance. Your participation in Ride United helps them further that mission. So be sure to come out a cycle for this important cause.
