Mission & Purpose

Great Cycle Challenge USA has one goal – to fight kids’ cancer! With the support of amazing individuals and teams, we can make this goal a reality. We strive to engage participants to help us provide kids affected by cancer with the brighter futures they deserve. While we encourage your participation, we hope our community platforms serve to provide helpful cycling tips and safety guidelines, words of encouragement to other participants as well as stories of individuals you’re riding for. All content should be in support of the goal to fight kids’ cancer.
