2013 Pedal Away Prostate Cancer Bike Race
The 2013 Pedal Away Prostate Cancer bike race will be held this year on Saturday, Sept. 14th at 9:30 am in Dover, Delaware to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer. A 25 mile timed race will begin and end at the Eden Hill Medical Center. The event is open to competitive cyclists as well as everyday bike riders who want to test their skills on a 25 mile course to support a worthwhile cause.
New to this year’s event will be a picnic lunch with awards ceremony following the race at the finish site. The keynote speaker will be Tubby Raymond, the University of Delaware football coaching legend who is a prostate cancer survivor himself. Several food vendors, such as Grotto’s Pizza, Texas Roadhouse and Chick-fil-A, as well as Fordham-Dominion microbrewery will be offering food and beer sampling.
In an effort to encourage men to be screened for prostate cancer, vouchers for free PSA blood tests and registration for free prostate exams will be available.
In addition, local vendors (both medical and retail) will be present as part of an expanded Health Fair, that will include blood pressure, eye, and skin cancer screenings as well as free massages. A drawing will also be held for a new 2013 Dodge Dart, sponsored by Holden Dodge.
This year’s Pedal Away Prostate Cancer event will also serve as the official bike race for the 2013 Delaware Senior Olympics for those who would like to compete simultaneously in two events. The Prostate Cancer race will be separate from the Amish bike tour which will be held the previous week.

For those who are just looking for a group to ride with, there are two rides that start in the Dover area. These rides are not part of the Delaware Senior Olympics. You ride at your own risk. There are no fees – just a group of cyclists who ride together. For detailed information, stop by the location and meet the other riders.
1. Usually Every Tuesday – 5 or 5:30pm – meet at the Wyoming Park (Wyoming, DE) parking lot – it is a small park so it should be easy to find the group.
2. Usually Every Saturday – 9am – meet at the Green Tree Shopping Center (Route 8 & Independence Blvd), Dover – around the Hardee’s parking lot.
