Itching for a really long bicycle ride?

This weekend, participants in the St. Jude Ride can pedal all day long - while they raise money to fund childhood cancer research.

The 12-hour team relay runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 7 at Driveway Austin, 8400 Delwau Lane. Participants will pedal 1.8-mile loops around the twisty, hilly course.

The event will include live music, food and activities. Prizes will be awarded to the team that raises the most money and the one with the fastest lap times.

Entry is $50 for adults or $25 for children 12 and under and includes a T-shirt, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Adults must also raise at least $100 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which provides free care to children with cancer. To register go to
