Thousands of women on bicycles to raise money for cancer research

Three thousand women on bicycles will be riding through Cache Valley on Saturday, June 4. They will be riding to raise money for the University of Utah’s Eccles Institute of Human Genetics. The money goes to help women fight the deadly disease of cancer. The annual Little Red Riding Hood bike race, in its 24th year, has raised over $850,000 for cancer research. The popular event has drawn riders not only from Cache Valley and the Wasatch Front but also from 46 states, Canada and Australia. Each year the race has a unique theme. The theme for 2011 is the Fabulous ’50s. A 1950’s style ice cream parlor will be at the finish line party and a live band will perform oldies music. For more information about the annual race, visit
