Women on Wheels

It’s women on wheels!

Join the 2011 Le Tour de Femme, a women-only cycling event with the mission of raising awareness and funding for cancer research and survivorship programs.

Local nonprofit Grab My Wheel presents this sixth annual tour on Saturday, Oct. 8, departing at 9 a.m. from Cycling Spoken Here, located at 1377 NW Maynard Road in Cary.

Le Tour de Femme offers female cyclists of all skill levels from across the country the opportunity to participate in rides of 15 miles, 31.2 miles or 62.4 miles. Since the tour’s inception, more than 1,000 riders have raised almost a quarter million dollars for cancer research and survivorship programs.

Proceeds of this year’s event will benefit the Rex Hospital Angel Fund and the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Grab My Wheel was founded in 2006 by cyclists Ron Hamner and David Goodall. The organization provides physical, emotional and financial support to people with cancer, and to the institutions dedicated to finding a cure.
