The 4K for Cancer is a 70-day cross-country bike ride for young adults between the ages of 18-26 years old. Participants will arrive in Baltimore on June 3rd, 2022 for a two-day orientation before send-off on June 5th. On June 5th, riders will embark on their 70-day journey across the country with the rest of their team, about thirty other participants. Riders will take turns driving the support vans each day and can expect to have about 10 rest days through their trip. Each day, riders will cover anywhere between 40-100 miles on their bikes but of course, there is still plenty of time in the day for fun! We encourage our teams to stop along the way and take in the sights and get to know the communities they are staying in. Each night on 4K, participants will stay with generous hosts who open up their homes, churches, gyms, community centers, etc.. to our teams. 4K for Cancer will conclude on August 13th, 70 days after send-off in San Franscico, CA with an arrival ceremony at Baker Beach.
