Have you seen the excitement of the Tour de France fans lining the course? This year’s Tour is over but we hope to recreate some of that energy and excitement during Obliteride weekend.
Get out your crazy outfit, your face paint and your cow bell! Make a sign and come cheer on Obliteride riders as they spin through your community to end cancer August 10 and 11. Your support will help keep Obliteride riders motivated all the way to the finish line.
Gather your friends, family and neighbors, and line the routes or simply come to the end of your driveway to cheer on riders as they pass through your neighborhood.
Bring signs honoring loved ones or friends who have battled cancer or are in the fight today.
Sign messages could include:
END CANCER NOW
U R MY HERO
RIDE TO END CANCER
The possibilities are endless. Get creative!
