Description

Cycling enthusiasts and fans are invited to participate in "Breakaway Ride presented by Specialized," two riding events held in conjunction with the upcoming 2010 Amgen Tour of California professional cycling race set for May 16-23, 2010. Both rides will be held in April 2010 to raise funds for Amgen's Breakaway from Cancer initiative, which aims to raise awareness of the continuum of resources available from prevention to education, and patient care to advocacy and financial support. TheBreakaway from Cancer nonprofit partners include the Prevent Cancer Foundation,Cancer Support Community, Patient Advocate Foundation and National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship.

Each 'Breakaway Ride' gives cycling enthusiasts the opportunity to ride the actual route of the 2010 Amgen Tour of California. Three distances will be offered for each ride to accommodate various skill levels; the longest distance covers the same route that the pros will ride (an entire stage). Riders will be chip timed and supported, with a maximum of 3,500 riders per event.
